hot fix installing in wrong directory

| View in Tracker

Status/Resolution/Reason: Closed/Withdrawn/CannotReproduce

Reporter/Name(from Bugbase): JOSEPH DEVORE / JOSEPH DEVORE ()

Created: 01/19/2017

Components: Hot Fix Installer

Versions: 11.0

Failure Type: Non Functioning

Found In Build/Fixed In Build: ColdFusion 11 Update 11 /

Priority/Frequency: Normal / All users will encounter

Locale/System: ALL / Win 2012 Server x64

Vote Count: 0

Problem Description: 
If your ColdFusion install doesn't use the default CF root (C:\ColdFusion11) the updater will create this directory and extract the hotfix files to the wrong location. The updater starts out running in the correct location of the downloaded JAR file, but then during the installation process it switches the Install Directory to: C:\ColdFusion11\ instead of, in my case: E:\ColdFusion\.

Steps to Reproduce:
Install CF 11 update 8, 9, 10 or 11 on a CF server with an install directory that is on a different drive and directory, e.g., E:\ColdFusion instead of the default: C:\ColdFusion11

Actual Result:

Updates installed in wrong location:

Expected Result:

Any Workarounds:
Install the updates manually using java.exe.



Hi Joseph, I tried the same steps which is in bug description , but still unable to reproduce the bug . 1. Install CF11 in non-default location ,say, E:\ColdFusion . 2. Install CF11 HF8 or HF11 from admin update section . I see that updates is installing in install directory location(E:\ColdFusion ) only . Can you please retry once again and let us know . Also , let us know if I am missing anything which help us in reproducing the bug. Thanks, Mukesh
