Installing ColdFusion 9 Error

If you have been running into the error while installing CF9 on IIS7 64bit:

The page you are requesting cannot be served because of the extension configuration. If the page is a script, add a handler. If the file should be downloaded, add a MIME map.

Then head over to Codecurry: Installing ColdFusion on IIS 7 + Configure IIS for ColdFusion in Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 for the solution. Its just a matter of enabling/ installing a few IIS options.
