In June of 2005 I was invited to give a keynote at CFUnited, one of the premier ColdFusion conferences around. It was a fun, and early preview of ColdFusion running on early alpha builds of IIS7. I remember hacking the frankenstein build together with a few private fixes from the dev team, and some custom tweaks to the configuration system, and then holding my breath as I went on stage to show off how some of the new, cool capabilities of IIS7 we were dreaming could help ColdFusion developers. Luckily, all the demos worked and the talk went off without a hitch.
Fast forward almost two years, and it is fun to see ColdFusion developers getting the product in Vista and writing about it. If you are looking for more information on how to get ColdFusion running on Vista and IIS7, check out this article: http://www.communitymx.com/content/article.cfm?cid=224AA by Heidi Bautista. It provides a great step-by-step overview of how to get rocking on IIS7.
