I’ve been having an issue with a quick and dirty development server I setup for a project. I couldn’t get Verity operations to run. I checked and low and behold there was no Verity Service installed. I reinstalled ColdFusion, but still no “ColdFusion Search Service” showed up.
I tried the super secret verity_uninstall and verity_install bat files, but still no joy.
Then I tried what I should have thought of in the first place. I right clicked verity_install.bat and chose to run as administrator. That did the trick; Verity is now completely working.
