Bugs fixed in ColdFusion (2016 release) Update 9

Bug ID



Manually installing ColdFusion (2016 release) Update 8 in Windows fails if you are not a local admin, even if you have full admin rights through a domain user/group.


After applying Update 8, scheduled tasks get deleted if the tasks were migrated from a previous version of ColdFusion or migrated via  CAR  file. This was because the neo-cron.xml file did not contain a var called  clustered .


An error occurs when returning the result of a QueryExecute from a function in a CFC.


Assigning the result of a QueryExecute directly to a variable reference with an array or struct notation results in an exception.


Known issues in this release

Issue #1

ColdFusion (2016 release) ODBC Server service does not start in some cases if the file msvcr100.dll is missing.


Copy the file msvcr100.dll from the backup folder CF_HOME/cfusion/hf-updates/<update folder>/backup/db/slserver54/bin to:

  1. [CF_HOME]\cfusion\db\slserver54\bin
  2. [CF_HOME]\cfusion\db\slserver54\admin

If the file does not exist in the backup, download the file and copy it to the locations mentioned above.

Issue #2

After upgrading to Update 8, there are ColdFusion.Ajax.submitForm errors in Internet Explorer 11.


Internet Explorer does not support the method startsWith(). You can add this method to <cfusion_home>\wwwroot\cf_scripts\scripts\ajax\package\cfajax.js by adding the snippet below:

if (!String.prototype.startsWith) {
    Object.defineProperty(String.prototype, 'startsWith', {
    value: function(search, pos)

        pos = !pos || pos < 0 ? 0 : +pos; return this.substring(pos, pos + search.length) === search; }
