The PDFg service behaves unexpectedly in add-on services for ColdFusion 11 and ColdFusion (2016 release).


Download the zip file and extract the contents as described in the steps below for both Windows and Linux.



  1. Extract the zip file pdfg-windows.zip.
  2. Stop ColdFusion Add-on services.
  3. Navigate to [cfaddonservices home directory]/webapps/PDFgServlet/Resources/bin.
  4. Take a backup the file HTML2PDFConverter.exe.
  5. Replace the file with the one that is shared in the zip file.
  6. Restart ColdFusion Add-on services.



  1. Extract the zip file pdfg.zip.
  2. Stop ColdFusion Add-on services.
  3. Navigate to [cfaddonservices home directory]/webapps/PDFgServlet/Resources/bin.
  4. Take a backup of the following files:
    • HTML2PDFConverter.exe
    • HTML2PDFConverter.sh
    • libcrypto.so
    • libcrypto.so.0
    • libcrypto.so.0.9.7
    • libcurl.so
    • libcurl.so.3
    • libssl.so 
    • libssl.so.0 
    • libssl.so.0.9.7 
  5. Replace these files with the ones that are present in the downloaded zip.
  6. Ensure that the files have the right permissions. The following files must have executable rights: 
    • chown nobody libcurl.so 
    • chmod 755 libcurl.so 
  7. Restart ColdFusion Add-on services.


Issue #1

If you assign the result of a QueryExecute directly to a bracket style variable reference, an exception occurs.


  1. Sttop ColdFusion service.
  2. Copy the jar file in cf_home/[instance]/lib/update.
  3. Delete all the class files in cf_home/[instance]/wwwroot/WEB-INF/cfclasses.
  4. Restart ColdFusion service.
  5. Repeat the steps for each instance.

Issue #2

An exception occurs when returning the result of queryExecute from a function in a CFC.


Scheduled tasks are missing.


If you have scheduled tasks migrated from a previous version of ColdFusion, backup the tasks before applying the update. Manually edit a backup copy of neo-crons.xml  by adding the following to each task.

<var name=’clustered’>

    <boolean value=’false’/>
