ColdFusion MX on Mac OS X, Part 3
Pages: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11

Put the ColdFusion MX Installation Files in the Virtual PC Dropbox

We are going to compress the entire CFMX installation and store it in the Dropbox as a single DOS file.

  1. In the Linux VPC shell, enter:

    tar -cvzf dropbox/cfmxinst.bin /opt

    The names of all the files being compressed will scroll through the display. After a few moments, the operation will complete and the command-line prompt will be displayed.

  2. Close the Virtual PC "RH Linux 7.2" window.

  3. 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.

Transfer the ColdFusion MX Installation Files to Mac OS X

  1. From the Virtual PC List window select the DOS VPC, then click the Startup button.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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 setup:

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

    Then click the Share button.

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

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

    copy d:cfmxinst.bin z:
  7. Wait a few minutes for the cfmxinst.bin file to be copied from the Dropbox drive. The DOS prompt will appear, indicating that the copy is complete. Close the Virtual PC "DOS" window.

  8. 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.
