Running Coldfusion 9 Without IIS6 Metabase

I’ve installed CF9 a few times, but until recently it’s always been a rushed affair and I just bumbled through the install to get a working server up fast.¬†This time around I decided to do some research and perform the install with ¬†performance and security in mind.

It always bothered me that when installing CF9 you had to enable the IIS6 Metabase role in the server just to get it working. But with update 9.0.1 that’s no longer the case. Just install that update and remove the IIS6 roles and you’re good to go.
