If you're a Mac person and haven't already installed ColdFusion 8 on 10.5 (Leopard), be aware that updating Java will cause the ColdFusion 8 (64-bit OS X) installer to fail. The problem appears to be that the Java version "1.5.0_16" is unrecognized by the installer as a supported 64-bit version of Java. Note that CF8 will run on Java version 1.5.0_16 for Mac, but it will not install to it.
