Quick note about setting up ACF9 on Windows 7 and IIS 7.5. In order to get everything working, you need to install the following:

In other words, you need to install the base install, the CF 9.0.1 update and the CF 9.0.1 Hot Fix 2. The Hot Fix is probably the most important as if you only install the base and then the update, you will receive a 500 error when trying to access any site running CF especially the CF Administrator.
