ColdFusion 9 Update 2 Silent Installation

ColdFusion 9 Update 2 is an updater to CF 9.0.1 which is a full installer. There is only full installer and updater installer (alpha of changes ) is not there.

It can be summed up as:

ColdFusion 9 Update 2 =  ColdFusion 9 + Update 1 + HotFixes + Security HotFixes – Verity.

You can download ColdFusion 9.0.2 from:

As this is a full installer it doesn’t require you to have CF 9 on your machine.

This installer can be run in UI or Console mode depending on the platform you are running on.

This is something you have to do manually. However, you can automate this process by performing silent installation.


perform silent installation you need to have the installer and a
properties file (say file named that installer
will use to install it silently. What properties file should contain is
explained hereunder.

Place the installer and the properties file in a directory. Open the command prompt and

start the installer silently as>ColdFusion_9_WWEJ_win.exe -f

you invoke this command prompt you can see an installation process in
the background (On Windows you can see it in the task manager)

are the sample properties file for different type of installations and
platforms. Please make sure to update the flags/paths/serial
numbers/passwords in the properties file before using these properties.

Note:Web server connector is not configured during silent
installation though the ColdFusion webroot files are placed as required.
You will have to run wsconfig tool to configure connector. As this can
be done using scripts this also can be automated.

  1. “As this is a full installer it doesn’t require you to have CF 9 on your machine.”

    Then why is the CF9 installer 443MB while the CF9.01 update installer is only 170MB? If I want CF9.01 on my machine I only need to use the 170MB installer?

  2. I just tried running the CF9.01 update installer and it requires the existence of CF9 already on the machine.

    The file I have is named: ColdFusion_update_901_WWEJ_win64.exe

    If there is a full CF9.01 installer file, I would like to know how to download it. Thanks.
