Pages: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11

Put the ColdFusion MX Download File in the Virtual PC Dropbox

  1. From the Virtual PC List window, select the DOS Virtual machine. Click the Settings... button.

  2. The Settings for "DOS" window opens and the Current Settings panel appears. Click the Drive 2 icon.

  3. The Drive 2 Settings panel appears. Click Hard drive image radio button.

  4. A Finder window appears. Navigate to the VPC Dropbox drive you created above, for example:

    Home ==> Documents ==> VPC Dropbox

    Click on the Open button.

  5. The Finder window disappears and the Current Settings page is updated to show the Dropbox as Drive 2. Click the OK button.

  6. The Settings window disappears and the Virtual PC List window is displayed. With the DOS VPC still selected, click the Startup button.

  7. The Virtual PC "DOS" window opens and DOS is booted. In the lower left corner (fourth from the left), click the Folder icon and then click Shared Folders Settings.

  8. The Settings for "DOS" window opens and the Current Settings panel and the Shared Folders Settings panel appear. In the Shared Folders Settings panel, click the Share folder... button.

  9. A Finder window appears. Navigate to the folder that contains the CFMX Trial version installation file (which we renamed to cfmxdnld.bin in a previous step):

    Home ==> Public ==> Drop Box

    Use the following settings:

    • Drive Letter: Z:
    • Share every time: Unchecked

    Then click on the Share button.

  10. The Finder window disappears and the Current Settings page is updated to show the Shared Folder. Click the OK button.

  11. In the Virtual PC "DOS" window enter the following DOS Command:

    copy Z:cfmxdnld.bin D:

    Wait a few minutes for the CFMXDNLD.BIN file to be copied into the Dropbox drive. The DOS prompt will appear, indicating that the copy is complete. Close the Virtual PC "DOS" window.

  12. When the Shut Down dialog appears, click Turn Off PC, then click the Turn Off button.

    Author's Note: As before, it is very important to turn off the PC rather than save its status. This allows us to access the Dropbox drive from a different Virtual PC.
