Updating Adobe Coldfusion Builder Error

So I was updating from Adobe Coldfusion Builder 2.0 to 2.0.1 and the installation said that it completed with errors. (I didn't uninstall first because the internet told me I didn't have to) After this error and the installation completed I couldn't open up Coldfusion Builder. I would get this error:

"The CFbuilder executable launcher was unable to locate its companion shared library"

So I decided that I was going to uninstall it and reinstall it. After I go to Uninstall Programs and try to uninstall it I was receiving this error:

"You do not have sufficient access to uninstall Adobe Coldfusion Builder 2. Please contact your system administrator."

Which is weird because I should have admin permissions. After looking online it seems that others have seen this error but there was no solution. Just for fun I decided to rename my Adobe directory (c:\Adobe\) which is where eclipse and what not is installed. After I did that I re-ran the installation for CFB 2.0.1 and wala it worked. Kind of hacky but seemed to work for me.

Switching Back To CFEclipse From CFBuilder

So I have been on the private beta of CFBuilder since it was Bolt when it first went to private testing and have loved most of it. I love the Extensions, the RDS is pretty cool, and being able to manage my servers inside the IDE is pretty slick. Although I have dealt with all the performance issues between each release I do have to say that I am in love with CFBuilder. Unfortunately what has killed most of my love for Builder is the price tag. $300 is a bit much for an IDE. Especially since there are a few really good ones that are free. Now you don't get as much of the cool stuff Builder offers, but it is pretty darn close. Also, $300 is fine when you are purchasing one license and that is it. As some people know I work at a pretty big Coldfusion shop. There are probably about 50 CF developers maybe. And at $300 bucks its a bit much. Event if they could do half off that is that is still $7,500 total. I don't know, it hurts me to switch off but I think I will live.
