Installing and Uninstalling
To uninstall ColdFusion Studio 4.5.2 after installing ColdFusion Studio 5, you must first uninstall ColdFusion Studio 5. Here's the proper sequence:
1 Install ColdFusion Studio 4.5.2
2 Install ColdFusion Studio 5
3 Uninstall ColdFusion Studio 5
4

Uninstall ColdFusion Studio 4.5.2

Installation Known Issues
If you are still running Beta 1 or 2, uninstall it before installing the released product. If you don't first uninstall, duplicate entries appear in the Start menu.
JRun Studio 3.0.1 may be installed on the same computer as ColdFusion Studio 5 and/or HomeSite 5. The preferred sequence of installation is to install JRun 3.0.1 and then ColdFusion Studio 5 and/or HomeSite 5. But, if you do install JRun Studio 3.0.1 after installing ColdFusion Studio 5 and/or HomeSite 5, you must reinstall ColdFusion Studio 5 and/or HomeSite 5.
If you uninstall HomeSite or ColdFusion Studio when you have more than one version installed on the same computer, do not select to delete the shared files during the uninstallation. For example, when HomeSite 4.5.2 and HomeSite 5 are installed on the same computer and you uninstall HomeSite 5, dialogs will appear during the uninstallation asking to delete shared files. In those dialogs, you must select No (the default is Yes). If you do inadvertently delete the files, you will need to reinstall. It is important that earlier versions of HomeSite or ColdFusion Studio are installed before later versions. So, you would reinstall HomeSite or ColdFusion Studio 4.5.2 first and then HomeSite or ColdFusion Studio 5. [29480]
Installation Wizard Known Issue

After uninstalling, the InstallShield Wizard Complete dialog may appear, indicating that installation has completed instead of uninstallation. [29633]

Installation log

An installation log file is created in the Windows root directory. The file, ColdFusionStudio5.nnn file, increments for each successive installation. If you have installation problems, you can attach the file to e-mail sent to our Support staff.

 

Running the Initial Configuration Wizard

The first time you run HomeSite 5, the application checks for a previous version, and if one is found, you can selectively import settings from that version. This feature lets you easily retain custom interface elements and settings you have made when you upgrade. Note that the wizard only works when upgrading the same product.

FTP & RDS Registry Settings Change

FTP and RDS connections created via HomeSite and ColdFusion Studio 4.5.x are stored in the registry under HK_CU\Software\Allaire\RemoteServers.

You should be aware that when you upgrade to the latest versions of the Visual Tools products, you are given a choice in the Initial Configuration Wizard to bring the connections to the latest installations. The selected connections as well as any new ones created in these versions will be stored in the HC_CU\Software\Macromedia\RemoteServers key.

 

Shell Namespace Extension Compatibility
This release note is for users who want to continue using HomeSite/ColdFusion Studio 4.5.2. In the older versions of the Visual Tools, the Shell Namespace Extension was called "Allaire FTP & RDS". In the new versions, the SNE node is called "Macromedia FTP & RDS". When HomeSite/ColdFusion 5 is installed on a machine with previous releases of these products, the previous versions no longer recognize the SNE node.

A utility is installed that can switch the name of the SNE back to "Allaire FTP & RDS". The program is called "SNECompatibility.exe" and it can be found in the program directory of the product, such as C:\Program Files\Macromedia\ColdFusion Studio 5. After you install the latest version, run this utility. After this utility is executed both versions will recognize the SNE Node.

 
  If you select the Allaire option, both your previous and latest versions of the product will have use that SNE name and both versions will work. If you select the Macromedia option, then the remote server functionality will work only in the latest version.


Macromedia Dreamweaver/UltraDev integration

Design View was removed from this release. The strength of HomeSite is its code editing features, while Macromedia Dreamweaver and UltraDev are the industry's choice for visual Web page design and application development. As a combined product family, we suggest that you take advantage of the respective strengths of our code-centric and visually-oriented products.

If Dreamweaver/UltraDev is detected on your system, you can click the Open in Macromedia Dreamweaver/UltraDev toolbutton on the Editor toolbar to edit the current document.

You can download a trial version of Macromedia Dreamweaver/UltraDev from the Macromedia website.

 

Macromedia Fireworks integration

If Fireworks is detected on your system, you can now launch it directly by right-clicking on an <img> tag, a graphics file in the Files list, or the Thumbnail view of a file, and then selecting the Edit in Macromedia Fireworks command. This lets you quickly access image source files for editing.

Launching Fireworks from an image file other than a PNG prompts you to find the PNG file associated with that image. Selecting Yes opens the File Open dialog, selecting No opens the current file in Fireworks. You can set file open options in the source file dialog box.

 

LiveDocs

The ColdFusion Studio online documentation contains a new way for users to comment directly on our documentation. At the bottom of each page you will see a Comments section that contains a button labeled "View comments on LiveDocs" which you can click to open a version of that page on our website.

At the bottom of the web version of the page you can read all the user comments about that page and you can click the Add Comments button to add your own. The first time you use LiveDocs, you are prompted to create an account on the system. You can then log in from any online documentation page to add comments.

LiveDocs provides great feedback to the Macromedia Documentation Group. Members of our writing staff are notified of each new comment in the system and we will attempt to correct errors and clarify points directly on the LiveDocs page. Larger documentation issues are targeted to the next product release.

Note: LiveDocs is not for technical support. For technical issues, you should go to the Support page on our site to view support options.

 

Known Issues

In some cases, selecting to Replace All using the Regular Search and Replace command (Control+R) causes the first element to be replaced twice. [30268]

In Options > Settings > Tag Definitions Library, if you only change the order of the tag libraries by clicking on the Up and Down buttons and then click Apply, the order will not take effect until you restart the application. The workaround is to click twice on the Current document's namespace receives highest priority checkbox to ensure the settings take effect for the current session. [30230]
When working over an RDS connection, the VTML Image Dialog Box does not display image type files (gif, jpg). The workaround is to use the default dialog box. To disable the VTML dialog box and use the default dialog box, clear the Options > Settings > Markup Languages > HTML/XHTML > Use the VTML Tag Dialog for > Image option. [30191]
When working over an RDS connection, dragging a file from the Files Tab onto the editor outputs the wrong path. [30189]
Because ColdFusion Server 5 isn't supported on WinXP Home, use remote debugging and not local debugging on WinXP Home.
Don't use Save All to save files that have different encodings. Save each file individually. [29841]
Downloading binary files (such as a .gif or any type of Unicode formatted file) from a Unix/Linux/Solaris machine will cause these files to get corrupted. [27495]
Tag Completion does not enforce XHTML rules. Enabling Options > Set Document as XHTML does not enable Auto Completion to function in XHTML mode.
On Windows 98/ME, drag and drop between the Desktop or Explorer to in-product remote servers or from in-product servers to the Desktop or Explorer does not work, although the cursor indicates that the operation will work.
File size rounding errors exist with remote files. Files appear to change size by 1K due to rounding down of the number of bytes as opposed to rounding up as with Window Explorer. No data is missing in these cases.
Check the Options > Settings > File Settings > FTP&RDS Always use binary for FTP transfer option to transfer all files in binary mode in both directions. This feature was added to handle Unicode file transfers which are otherwise altered and rendered unusable by ASCII FTP transfer. [28519]

If you have ColdFusion Server and ColdFusion Studio installed on the same XP machine, choosing the dropdown button the Files tab will be slow to show the list of options.

Windows Explorer shows "Add RDS server" in the RMB context menu even after uninstalling. [26444]

Switching between the Database Resources tab and any other tab cause causes an automatic refresh to the next higher directory level. [29434]

When attempting to connect to an RDS Server through the files pane, do not attempt to use any file (i.e. non-editor) related functionality until either the operation succeeds or the request times out. Otherwise, the Files tab displays incorrectly and access violations can occur. [29764]

When creating an RDS connection in the Configure RDS Server dialog box, choosing the Use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) option causes an error. [29825]
On Windows XP, if you delete a remote folder from the left pane of Explorer, the folder will continue to be displayed in the folder tree even though it has been removed. Closing and reopening the Explorer will fix the problem.
On Windows XP, double clicking a remote folder may not show the contents of the folder. A manual refresh (F5) will display the files in the right pane of Explorer.
Using the Word-wrap and Collapse text features together may cause the vertical scrollbar to disappear, preventing viewing of the remainder of the document. If this occurs, use the RMB Expand All Collapsed Sections command to restore the document. [29542]
If you try to open a folder that contains a shortcut (.lnk file) which refers to a non-existing folder, HomeSite/ColdFusion Studio 5 will crash on NT. [29697]
With twelve items in the clipboard, and maximum clipboard entries set well above 13, copying the thirteenth item into the clipboard removes item 10, and ordering of items is mixed (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,13,11,12). [29596]
Embedded Help text in the HTML/XHTML tag editors may not display clearly. Use F1 Help instead. [29370]
If a document contains an XML declaration on the first line, using the Options > Set Document to XHTML command overwrites that declaration text. If you use the Set the document as XHTML command, you can then edit the declaration text as needed or insert additional XML declaration text. [29314]
In Expression Builder, the "not" "and" "or" and "xor" buttons don't work [29262]
Right-clicking an image in the Thumbnails tab in the Results window and selecting Properties does not update the Bits per pixel and Size in Mem properties.
Options > Settings > Spelling > Maximum number of suggestions can be manually set to a number from 0 to 30. However, the actual range of suggestions is 1 to 20.
The Configure FTP Server timeout setting is not functional. You can enter a timeout value but only the default setting is in effect.

The Secondary Files tab will not consume resources on Windows 95/98/Me if it is not visible when the application launches. To hide the tab, disable the View > Resource Windows > Files 2 option. Restarting the application will regain resources used by the window. [27164]

The Tools > Verify Project with Linkbot feature does not work. If you use this command and Linkbot hangs, use Windows Task Manager to close it. [27661]

 

Fixed and Closed Issues
 

The following are issues that were fixed and closed during the test cycle and for which a release notes was written. Minor and transitory issues are generally closed without a release note.
The entries are grouped by the test release for which they were fixed.

 

RC1

Removed the Options > Settings > Spelling Recheck misspelled words as smaller words option. [29655]
The Source Control Tool Bar "Add file to Source Control" button is now enabled when a new document is in focus. [29687]

Fixed bug searching in the sub folders on a FTP/RDS server [27744]
We have added a new check box in the FTP & RDS settings dialog that allows a user to specify to always use binary transfer with FTP. The product makes the assumption to use ascii with certain file extensions. By checking the new check box ("Always use binary for FTP transfer") this assumption is bypassed and these files are transferred in binary mode in both directions (up & download) We have specifically added this feature to handle unicode file transfers which are otherwise altered and rendered unusable by ftp transfer. This should affect both the feature docs and the release notes dealing with work arounds and warnings about Unicode transfers. [28519]

During installation, when a user enters in their serial number and selects Next, they cannot go back to previous dialogs. If the user cancels after entering a valid serial number, the next time they install, the user will not see the serial dialog. [29118]

Setting the "Lowercase Inserted Tags" option via the VTOM Application.SetApplicationSetting method did not take effect until the app was restarted. This has been fixed. [17186]

The space requirements noted during the installation are based on the file system type and the sector sizes of the hard disk. Therefore, depending on how the disk is formatted, different space requirements will display for different operating systems. [28718]

Docking a Files tab while the files list was in the process of being populated caused an access violation. This has been fixed. [27502]

License file is now installed and available from Start menu. [28458]

When performing a Save All, no save prompt will occur for new files which have not been modified. [27658]
Fixed access violation when unindenting a line when the first single space was selected. [26786]
Using File > New to create a new document from a template will overwrite the current document if it is blank or the default new document. This is the same behavior as 4.52. [27493]
Printing long documents resulted in the bottom line of each page being cut off. This has been fixed. [27850]
After editing a folder in the Files tab which contained a large number of files, duplicate filenames would appear in the file list. This has been fixed. [27591]
Fixed a problem with the Application.ResourceTabShowing VTOM method. [27795]
New Application object VTOM methods were added for compatibility with JScript: GetImageHeight(sImageName): integer - Returns the image height in pixels for the passed image filename GetImageWidth(sImageName): integer - Returns the image width in pixels for the passed image filename GetURLResponse(sURL): string - Returns the response string for the passed URL GetURLStatusCode(sURL): integer - Returns the status code for the passed URL. [26911]

The image toolbutton will now correctly open the XTHML tag editor when in XHTML mode. [27736]

If Fireworks is detected, it is enabled for graphics file editing. [28110]

Tabs can now be included in Code Templates. When the template is expanded in the editor and the editor setting Insert tabs as spaces is enabled, the tabs will be converted to spaces. Otherwise the tabs will be entered as ASCII #9 characters. [27598]

When the Options > Settings > File Setting If another process modifies the document options is set to Prompt to reload or Always reload, a file on the disk will reload whether it is older or newer than the file in the editor. Previous versions only triggered the reload if the file on disk was newer. [27388]

Performance is improved when switching between large documents in the editor. [26849]

Performance is improved when opening large documents. [28016]

If both Files tabs (Files 1 and Files 2) are on same directory, saving the current document to that directory refreshes the file list in both tabs. [27248]

Performing a Paste all operation now marks the document as modified. [26532]

Creating a new directory beneath the current document directory and then attempting to save the current document no longer results in an error message. [27727]

The editor now should detect when a selection is improperly made within a collapsed region. If this happens, the selection is changed to include the entire collased area. If the user then starts typing, the collapsed region will be completely replace with the typed text, which is what normally happens with regular, uncollapsed text. [27990]

The Options > Set Document as XHTML command is now disabled when the active document is read-only. [27542]

The Save icon and menu item are now disabled if the current document is read-only. [27428]

When switching between two document types with different color coding schemes, such as HTML and PHP, the vertical and horizontal scroll positions where not maintained. This has been fixed. [27386]

Documents which are not designated as XHTML and do not contain a DOCTYPE declaration now default to the HTML namespace. [27209]

In Beta 2, dragging a file onto selected text in the editor would not wrap the Anchor tag around the selected text as in 4.52. This has been fixed. [28264]

Pressing F4 in the editor would not display the Tag Inspector and would display the error message Cannot focus a disabled or invisible window. This has been fixed. [28225]

Checking out a file from source control now prompts the user to override the existing document, if it is already open, so that the user will not lose changes. [27473]

Fixed a problem using the external browser feature. [27770]

The Source Control toolbar now functions on the current document. With some providers, it is necessary to open a project in order to set the source control provider, but all toolbar actions occur on the current document. [27764]

Fixed the Delphi Error message that occurred when the user used a Source Control tooolbar option when the project tab did not have focus. [27766]

Checking out a file using a source control file now opens the file in the editor window. [26801]

Improved the speed performance of project creation to the same level as 4.5.2 projects. [28037]

Installing the 5.0 beta Visual Tools with HomeSite/ColdFusion Studio 4.5.2 or JRun Studio 3 installed now changes the Allaire FTP RDS icon Macromedia FTP RDS. [26688]

Closing ColdFusion Studio 4.5.2 or 5.0 on a computer where ColdFusion Server 5.0 was installed after ColdFusion Studio no longer causes an access violation or hang when closing ColdFusion Studio. [22420]

You can close the debug window by right-clicking in it and choosing the Close item. [26467]

If user deals with any file with Unicode, Unicode Big Endian and UTF-8 encoding, check box of "Enable non-ANSI file encoding" in File Settings (Options > Setting > File Settings) must be checked. Otherwise, these non-ANSI file strings cannot be manipulated properly by our editor. [27101]

With multiple documents open, including one or more in split editor mode, closing one document could result in an access violation. This has been fixed. [27429]

Creating a tag by drag/dropping a file or image onto the editor would place the cursor before the inserted tag, although the actual insertion point was after the tag. This has been fixed so the cursor is displayed correctly immediately after the inserted tag. [27268]

Performing line indents/unindents when the editor option "Insert tabs as spaces" is on should now maintain the current selection correctly. [26124]

The Secondary Files tab will not consume resources on Windows 95/98/Me if it is not visible when the application launches. If the tab is hidden by the user (uncheck View > Resource Windows > Files 2), you must restart the application to gain back the resources used by the window. [27164]

The option to use the Microsoft Office 97 spelling dictionary was always disabled in Beta 1. This has been fixed. [26907]

There is now a setting for the size of the icons in the Editor vertical toolbar. By default, the icons are set to be large. To reduce their size, select: Options > Setting > Editor > Small Editor Buttons from the Options list. [26768]

While link verification is in process, the Results window cannot be docked or floated. [22752]

The VTOM method ActiveDocument.LastSavedDate() was not returning a valid date. This has been fixed. [26947]

The localhost node added automatically under Macromedia Ftp & RDS is set up to allow immediate access to the local RDS server if it has been configured to default settings. The node is non-functional unless ColdFusion Server is installed on the loacl machine. [26377]

You can now make Favorites folders to FTP and RDS connections. Windows mapping of FTP connections is not supported [25940]

Extended Search and Replace no longer eliminates bookmarks. [9210]

Docking or undocking the Results window while links are being verified no longer causes a crash. [22752]

Changing tabs in the editor while a save is occuring no longer causes the editor tabs and file names to get out of sync. [20907]

When a file is deleted the files pane no longer becomes out of sync. [15023]

Double-clicking to select words should now be more stable. Also, double-clicking in starting whitespace in a line (spaces or tabs) will select the first word in the line. [14315]

Color coding is maintained correctly in VBScript comments. [17379]

With the editor setting "Allow cursor past end of line" on, pressing CTRL+RIGHT arrow followed by Cursor Left would not move the editor cursor left. Fixed. [16007]

Remote file paths that contain a period (.) are now saved properly via auto-backup. [26698]

Design View mode has been removed from the product. [26360]

Fixed bug that made it impossible to create color coding schemes such as .tpl because the .pl matched the extension for Perl files. [27001]

 

Beta 1

Attribute values with nested quotes are now maintained correctly in the tag editors. [6388]
Line numbers in the Editor gutter are now displayed in the same font and font size as those chosen for the Editor. As a result, the numbers are no longer cut off when using a small font size in the Editor or illegibly small for those using a very large font. [8633]
When performing a Find Next operation, when the end of the document has been reached users are now prompted to continue searching at the beginning" of the document rather than simply being informed that the search has reached the end of the document. [9147]
Tag help (F1) now works with tags that contain tabs, line feeds, and carriage returns. [19033]
The Deployment Script generated VTOM code has been optimized to cache a single reference to the global Deployment manager application object property. [17969]
When you click the show line numbers button and the gutter is not showing, it forces the gutter to show so that the line numbers will be visible. [24542]
When creating new folders on remote connections, the new folder will be named NewFolder or NewFolder_1. The user will need to do a RMB > Rename in order to change the name of this folder, except if the parent node of the new folder has never been expanded. [18138]
Application title bar correctly updates to current document title while in Full Screen Mode. [21500]

Fixed AV that occurred in projects on a right-click on a file. [14055]

It is now possible to add a toolbar button for Dock All Resource Windows. [13504]

Deployment Script Wizard: When trying to create a deployment script for a project residing on a remote server, the calculated deployment script filename would not properly include the remote FTP (or RDS) server configuration which yielded an error message when trying to generate the script. [14091]

When multiple files are selected in the Files tab and the RMB Properties item is selected, only one properties dialog appears for all files instead of a separate dialog for each file. [12074]

The majority of problems with duplicate entries in the Files tab should be resolved. As part of this fix, file updates are delayed when rapidly moving through the folder tree. The amount of delay is controlled by the following registry entry: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Macromedia\HomeSite5\ResourceTab\FileListChangeDelay (HomeSite) or HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Macromedia\Studio5\ResourceTab\FileListChangeDelay (CF Studio). This string value specifies the number of milliseconds to delay before updating the file list. [13607]

Refresh problems with the Files tab caused by renaming a file with the Save As command and double-clicking a folder to open it have have been fixed. [10272]

In the past it was possible to accidentally undock Resource tabs with the slightest hand movement while clicking to switch between tabs. Now it requires a deliberate movement to undock tabs, so that one will not unintentionally undock them. [10507]

Non-administrative Windows NT/2000 users can now launch the application without error. [17098]

A superfluous Spell Check Cancelled message no longer displays when the user presses the Spell Check cancel button. [16025]

Dropping a .js file into a document will now insert a
<script src="*.js> instead of an <A> tag. [17996]

Moving the cursor, not the scroll bar, vertically down a document that contained a collapsed text region would not always scroll the document text into view correctly. This has been fixed. [16141]

When a user attempts to perform a Replace operation on a read-only document, they are now prompted to save changes to the document. [15986]

When a user sorts on a column in the Files tab and then hides the column which is being sorted on, the file list display reverts to sorting on the Name column, which is always visible. [19796]

Project folders accept folders that are drag and dropped from Windows Explorer. [18018]

It is possible to drag and drop files to the virtual folders within projects [18019]

The Options - Settings - General pane now includes a Lock checkbox in the Resource tab preferences section. When this feature is enabled, you will not be able to separately undock the tabs, preventing problems with the tab display. [17712]

When docked, the Resources tabs may no longer be resized to be invisible by dragging the divider between them and the editor. [18078]

Search and Replace now works correctly for case-insensitivity with supported extended character sets. [18471]

Using the Alt+U keyboard shortcut in the File > Open from Web dialog now correctly takes the focus to the drop-down box. [18359]

When a tag editor has incorrect syntax in its supporting vtm file, the error dialog box reports the line number where the incorrect syntax occurs. [18601]
