Transfer from one server to another

I have an old HP ProLiant server with ColdFusion 10 on it.   The server is government provided and is running Windows Server 2003. It is agonizingly slow, especially via my company's VPN.  The SysAdmin at the office spun up a VM Windows 2008 R2 server for me and I'm in the process of transferring everything from the old server to the new one.   It is a development database.   I have downloaded and installed Oracle 11g on the new server, imported the old database and code.  Oracle allows you to download and use the software for free if it's a single user development machine.   I am under the impression that Adobe doesn't do the same with CF.   What is the process to transfer the license?   Since this project is at end of life, my government customer doesn't want to spend money on a new server, or any new software.   Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You can install the free ColdFusion Developer Edition if it is only being used for development purposes.

I was hoping that would be the case. I went to the download page and searched for ColdFusion Developer Edition.  The results gave me a download link.  That took me to the 30 day trial page.  I answered all the dropdown questions and it let me download CF11.  However, this doesn't seem right, unless my answering I am a Developer and the only user of the product triggers something.  Hopefully, I am not going down the wrong path.

I figured it out.  There is a place in the install that you designate Developer Edition.  Thanx.
