Coldfusion 9 Installation issues with Windows 8

*** UPDATE : Adobe had since provided support for Windows 8 with Coldfusion 10. In my case I had to reinstall windows 8 to remove the Coldfusion 9 installation. ***

Adobe Coldfusion 9 is having installation issues on Windows 8. I upgraded my PC with Windows 7 having Coldfusion version 9.0.2 to Windows 8. When I tried to run the Coldfusion application I got errors in IIS so I tried to uninstall Coldfusion.

Here is the error that I received.



I again tried to install Coldfusion (ColdFusion_9_WWEJ_win64.exe), but it too failed with the following messages.



Hope Adobe will roll out updated installers and uninstallers for existing installation.
