ColdFusion 10 update 3 released with critical fixes

Yes, the title says it all, Update 3 for ColdFusion 10 is released today. This fixes connector related important issues. ColdFusion blog and technote lists all details about this. T

Note: Don't forget to apply mandatory update before installing this.

Note: [02-11-2012]: Update 4 is released fixing some important issues. See full details here.


  1. Hi,
    We've applied the update to CF 10 servers running on Windows Server 2008, but on most of the servers we've had to roll-back the hotfix. It appears it has something to do with Sandbox Security being enabled, because the servers that did not have Sandbox Security enabled were able to apply the hotfix with no problem. Then when we tried applying it to one with Sandbox Security enabled, the CF service would not start in Windows. This is the message from the Event Viewer:

    Faulting application name: coldfusion.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x5052ed25
    Faulting module name: ntdll.dll, version: 6.1.7601.17725, time stamp: 0x4ec4aa8e
    Exception code: 0xc0000374
    Fault offset: 0x00000000000c40f2
    Faulting process id: 0x3dd4
    Faulting application start time: 0x01cdac838947c3bd
    Faulting application path: c:\ColdFusion10\cf2\bin\coldfusion.exe
    Faulting module path: C:\Windows\SYSTEM32\ntdll.dll
    Report Id: c9b607a7-1876-11e2-bc86-005056878037

    Should we submit a support ticket with Adobe about this, or do you have any recommendations?


  2. I hate to be anything like a fear-monger when it comes to applying the update, but before doing so, folks may want to read the comments at the CF blog entry Shilpi points to. Several people are reporting problems after applying it (valuable, though the many fixes indeed are).

    While some of the problems reported may be rather unique, at least one seems to be happening to all: scheduled tasks are being lost on each restart (which means one would lose all tasks that were in place before applying the update, and then any added/updated after that.)

    But I would propose that people should report any comments about that (or other issues with the update) there on that blog (as I just have, confirming that issue above and offering more details). It would be unfortuante to split the discussion of those into two places.

    Again, I'm just commenting here because some may see this entry and not that one, so I want to point them there for further consideration.

    Sorry to spoil the party a bit, Shilpi. :-( I feel like the guy coming to an outdoor wedding reporting news of a pending storm. Let's hope this one soon passes.

  3. Hi Jake,

    Please raise a support issue or log a bug.

    Additionally please share if there is any errors logged on coldfusion logs.

    I have not seen this error, so more information will help here.


  4. Hi Charlie,

    Thanks for sharing the information here. This would definitely help. And it is for sure best to have a consolidated information.

    You are most welcome with comments and feedback. : )


  5. Hi Jake,

    Have you tried starting coldfusion from command prompt with run as administrator option ?


  6. Shilpi,

    Yes, when I go to "cfusion\bin" (when running CMD as Administrator), I am able to start ColdFusion using "cfstart.bat". Should I still report a bug for this, or log a ticket, or report over at the main blog Charlie mentioned? Which would be best?

    Thanks for the help!

  7. Reporting and adding to the main blog for this update is the best I believe. There all the reports are consolidated together.

    Happy to help!
