Ran into an issue while trying to get 64 bit Coldfusion running on Snow Leopard. Somehow Adobe’s installer can’t deal with the fact that the java binaries are symlinked in OS X so you have to manually remove the symlinks and then copy the binaries over. This page documents how to do it. The only thing I did differently is instead of simply deleting the symlinks I created a directory and moved them into that. This way I can restore the system back to normal.

Is this specific to CF8? I have installed CF9 on a few Snow Leopard machines now and have yet to have an problems with it.
Yes, this is a CF8 specific issue. Apparently it could also happen with Leopard after a certain Java update was applied.
