FDS and Coldfusion Server Config


Level 1
I have a Coldfusion server set up in "Server" mode (as

procedures outlined in the

success. I get HTTP 500 errors whenever I try to browse an mxml

way to get CF and FDS to talk to each other without all this manual

I appreciate any help,

the compiled .swf (like you would for any other flash
