I'm thrilled to find this article... thanks to Dick and to O'Reilly!

My question:
Is there a way for someone who's gone thru this process to just capture the 'package' that gets moved to the mac and save a bunch of labor (mine grin) or does one have to go thru all these steps on their own? What are the issues?

I've just really begun to scratch the surface with CF at the office (on a W2k box (YUCK!))... tho I'm already building some apps that are blowing away my co-workers! And we have some kind of agreement so that we're allowed to have a copy of the software to use at home - so I don't think I'd be breaking any licensing issues.

I LOVE this tool and would love to be able to do the same things on my iMac 800 at home.

One of the things I want to start doing is using these concepts i'm learning at the office to do custom web development outside the office. I need CF on the Mac to do that!

Any ideas?

    I was told by Macromedia people that distributing the port is a violation of the license agreement.

    There was a recent thread on CF-Talk* about this with the suggestion that people enter their requests to:

    Macromedia is listening & these requests do have an impact.

      Thanks for the feedback. I was afraid there'd be some kind of issue like that preventing the sharing of the 'port'... bummer!

      I also appreciate the link to the CF-Talk* newsletter... we actually have a similar service here at my office and it has the same name.

      I also did as suggested and went to the macromedia site and gave them my request for OS X support.

      Wonderful help!

      Thanks Dick
