We're on ColdFusion 11, but when we start ColdFusion one of the lines in the server.log file reads: '"Information","localhost-startStop-1","03/27/18","03:51:16",,"Invalid ColdFusion 9 license."'

Problem Description:
We're on ColdFusion 11 Enterprise (update 13), and run 15 instances on Windows server. This is our production environment. When we start or restart any of the instances, one of the lines ColdFusion writes to the server.log file is:

 "Information","localhost-startStop-1","03/27/18","03:51:16",,"Invalid ColdFusion 9 license."'

See attached extract from server.log

Steps to Reproduce: 
(We doubt whether this can be reproduced elsewhere.)

1. Install ColdFusion 11 Enterprise (update 13), using a licence upgraded from a ColdFusion 9 license.

2. Create several instances.

3. Stop one of the instances, then start/restart it.

4. Open the file server.log in a text editor.  

Actual Result:
You will find a line in server.log that reads "Invalid ColdFusion 9 license."

Expected Result:
that should instead read "Starting license...", which is what we have in our development environment where we installed the Developer version of ColdFusion

Any Workarounds:
