Problem Description: The "ColdFusion Builder: Getting Started" welcome page that shows on opening ColdFusion Builder has links at the bottom to useful places, both local and remote. But one of these is a link for "Tour De CF" which has been defunct for some time. (gives internal server 500 error for as long as I've been using CF Builder)

Steps to Reproduce: Open CF Builder, click link at bottom of the screen for "Tour De CF"

Actual Result:
Internal Server Error
The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

Please contact the server administrator, webmaster@localhost and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

Expected Result: uh, web page or something?

Any Workarounds: Yes, don't click the link, but that still advertises that "we don't care about petty details", when what we are selling is attention to details!.

BTW, I'm using Internet Explorer 10, in compatibility mode, and the submit button is a thin sliver. AFTER I submit the form, I'll try switching out of compatibility mode and see if buttons "normalize". as I have found, switching while submitting a form often causes the form to reset!

I know that this is a minor, minor thing and might not even get reviewed, but my organization is paying for the product, I like it and want it to spread and it's an uphill battle when opponents can point out that "You can't even get through the welcome page without being able to trip an error!"

Back to submission of the bug form mentioned in "BTW, using IE 10" paragraph. Switching OUT OF compatibility mode correctly displays the form submit buttons... FWIW.

Milan, can you please investigate this and see if we can get the actual Tour De CF stuff working. (Comment added from ex-user id:dsarkar)

Confirmed in CFBuilder 2016 as well: Version 3.1.0 Build 298004 @Sarkar, I don't believe the Tour De CF stuff is still on the web

+1 - Why is it taking 3 YEARS to remove the bad link?

Hi Adobe, Yeah.. umm.. Please remove the bad link. "Tour De CF" doesn't work. Can someone delete that link and close-out this ticket? Verified in: Version: 3.1.4 Build: 302777 More importantly, why is a simple ticket like this remaining open for 3yrs? Thanks! -Aaron
