ColdFusion 9.0.1 Update Fails to Install on Windows 2008

I’ve run into this twice in as many weeks, on Windows 2008 when running the ColdFusion 9.0.1 updater it will fail to complete successfully.  Each time failing with the same message in the install log:

ANT Script Error:
Status: ERROR
Additional Notes: ERROR - cfmx-patch-move-files-all.xmlFailed to copy C:ColdFusion9libcfperfmon_9.dll to C:Windowssystem32cfperfmon_9.dll due to C:Windowssystem32cfperfmon_9.dll (The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process)

Each time, however, I was able to simply rename the dll while ColdFusion was stopped and the upgrade continues successfully.

  1. Good one! I actually found my way here prior to finding the exact error message. The Adobe_ColdFusion_9.0.1_InstallLog.log is not written to until the upgrade installer is closed. As long as it is still open, it has not written to the log file. The default location of the log file is C:\ColdFusion9.
