Adding Coldfusion 10 instances to IIS Gotcha.

The Web Server Connector tool in the Windows start menu for ColdFusion 10 will only allow you to connect websites to the CFUSION (main) instance. If you want to connect a site to a different instance, you'll need to run the connector tool located in the new instance's directory from the cmd line.

{cf install root}\NewInstance\runtime\bin\wsconfig.exe

As a note,  when you start wsconfig.exe in the new instance directory,  it looks just the same.   After you're done, you can see which instance is associated with each web site in the Web Site Configuration Tool.   It should have something like:

[localhost:NewInstance] Internet Information Server (IIS) : Website
