I see people asking this occasionally, so it bears pointing out here in the portal: ColdFusion Builder 2016 is included with your purchase CF 2016. Let me quote one of the questions and answers from Adobe’s Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) for ColdFusion Builder 2016:

Is ColdFusion Builder 2016 included with Adobe ColdFusion 2016?

Yes. ColdFusion Builder 2016 is included with both Adobe ColdFusion 2016 Enterprise Edition and Standard Edition. You get three licenses of ColdFusion Builder 2016 with Adobe ColdFusion 2016 Enterprise Edition, and one license with Adobe ColdFusion 2016 Standard Edition.

You can also purchase ColdFusion Builder 2016 separately.

I’ll add, as well, that those in education can also get a free license to ColdFusion Builder. See the several questions and answers in the FAQ starting at “Free ColdFusion Builder 2016 for education”.

There is also an entirely free edition of CFBuilder, the Express edition (which lacks several key features but is still valuable for many). I’ll share more about that in a separate post.

Justin, my understanding is that when you are sent your license key for CF, you are also sent one for CF Builder. Perhaps someone from Adobe may chime in to clarify, or to indicate how you could obtain yours if you have lost track of it.

Ok, thanks. Because I don’t recall seeing one.

Do you have any sort of URL they may have offered that would be a license portal, where you’d login to see your current CF license key? If so, that would/should show the CFB one.

I realize you may not know it (or you may feel you were never given one). If you’re that stuck, you should email cf.install@adobe.com. You can see that has been offered as a way to get the very help you seek, in this CF forum thread:

You’ll also see I just added a comment there asking Adobe if they might be able to just share more info there, rather than request people to email for such direct help. 🙂

So what keycode do you use when installing and licensing CF Builder 2016? Is it the same as ColdFusion 2016?

Justin, did you see the answer offered in that thread I pointed to (in my last comment)? See specifically Anit’s answer (from Adobe), here:
