Installation Fail; FarCry 7 on CF8

Hi all,

There may be a simple answer. Can FarCry 7 run on CF 8?

I just created a site, and it appeared as though everything went fine. The db is populated with FarCry tables., and the normal installation files one would expect to see are present. But when I try to view the site or login I get the same error message:

cdn   [text output on page]

Hi Tobin,

Yes FarCry 7.x now uses features that are only found in CF 9/10/11 or Railo 3.3+, in this case it’s an implicit array notation that CF8 is failing on. In general our latest will release will support the current version and the two previous versions.

The last version that supported CF8 would have been FarCry 6.2, you could try that… Though I’d recommend upgrading CF, even if it was just for security features.
