The Hotfix Installer should offer the option to "Restart ColdFusion after install?" - Yes/No| View in Tracker
The Hotfix Installer tries to start Cold Fusion in every case when the hotfix installation completes. For those doing manual installs with CF services stopped, this hotfix automatic restart can cause serious problems, including starting as process under the installer's account and causing attempts to start the service with the "Services" tool to fail. It also confuses the installer who doesn't understand why CF is "working" (likely under the wrong account), yet can't be started as a service. Instead, the Hotfix Installer should offer the user the option to "Restart ColdFusion after install? - Yes/No" as part of the install dialog. This option would enable the administrator to take control of installation and prevent incorrect startup. It also allows checking update logs and things before putting ColdFusion back into production.
