path_info blocks the *.mxml.cfswf file creation.

<cfform name="myForm" format="flash"><cfinput type="text" name="myInput" value="Can you see me?" /></cfform>

In the repro steps, "" refers to the URL for mypage.cfm

Repro steps:
1) Ensure SES is enabled in C:\ColdFusion10\cfusion\wwwroot\WEB-INF\web.xml
2) Visit
3) Observe Flash form doesn't load (b/c path_info "/foo" blocks the *.mxml.cfswf file creation)
4) Visit
5) Observe Flash form loads (b/c the *.mxml.cfswf file is created here)
6) Visit
7) Observe Flash form now loads (b/c the *.mxml.cfswf was previously created)
8) Visit
9) Observe Flash form doesn’t load again (b/c "?bar" requires a new *.mxml.cfswf file, but path_info "/foo" blocks the *.mxml.cfswf file creation)
10) Visit
11) Observe Flash form loads (b/c the *.mxml.cfswf file was created here for "?bar")
12) Visit
13) Observe Flash form now loads again (b/c the *.mxml.cfswf file was previously created for "?bar")

Before repeating repro steps, restart machine.

Verified on four different IIS7+ machines (two Win2k8 and two Win7).

Simply put: SES URLs break <cfform format="flash". Just add <cfform format="flash" in mypage.cfm. Then go to and see the Flash form does not load. Can this please be verified? Thanks, -Aaron

Hi Adobe, Thank you very much for communicating with me. This ticket is now very low priority for me. Can it please be marked Verified/Closed/LowImpact? Or at least a comment added saying it was verified, and then close it? Other tickets are higher priority. I no longer care so much about this ticket. Thanks!, -Aaron

Verified with form format as flash it fails loading the page, but when changed the format to html it works. Spoke to Aaron, marking it as closed/LowImpact.
