I just installed ColdFusion 11 on a Windows 2008 server. After installation, I got the message to proceed with configuration using the link
where foo.com is 127.0.0.1
However, it keeps rejecting the userid and password I provided during installation for administrator.
Any help is highly appreciated.
This blog entry should help you: Troubleshooting ColdFusion Admin Login Issues.
You can also try the following quick workarounds:
passwordreset.batand then try with the same ip or loopbak ip address.
http://localhost:8500/CFIDE/administrator/index.cfm, where 8500 is the internal port for ColdFusion.
Note: Enabling internal/built port would require a ColdFusion Application Server restart.

The issue is happening because of mime type (.air) entry specified in the web.config of the webroot.
Can you try the following steps:-
Navigate to the webroot of your site.
Take a backup of web.config and open it with text editor (notepad etc)
Comment the entry for mimeType extension of ".air" like <!--<mimeMap fileExtension=".air" mimeType="application/vnd.adobe.air-application-installer-package+zip" />-->
Save the file and restart IIS.
Launch CF Admin and try to login.
Commenting out the .air type in site specific web.config file has resolved the issue.
