ColdFusion Builder (2016 release) fails to launch


When you try to launch ColdFusion Builder, there's no response from Builder. This usually occurs due to corrupted workspace files.


To fix this issue, follow the steps below:

  1. Navigate to C:\Users\{useraccount} and rename the folder ColdFusion Builder 2016 workspace.


    We recommend that you take a backup of the workspace as it contains existing settings for projects, which you may need later.

  2. Launch command prompt as “Run as Administrator” and navigate to the (assuming you have installed it on C: drive) “C:\AdobeColdFusionBuilder2016” and type the command:

    CFBuilder.exe -clean

  3. Relaunch ColdFusion Builder (2016 release).

ColdFusion Builder launches successfully with a fresh workspace.


In case your ColdFusion Builder takes a long time to load, install Update 4 and relaunch ColdFusion Builder.
