Hello, I wanted to install version on a new virtual server (win 2016 (10.0, 64bit)) The installer does not start. After several attempts I switched to version The installation ran without problems. Now I wanted to update to 5.3. via the update function and I get the following error message:

Lucee Error (expression)
Message Can’t cast Complex Object Type Structure to String
Detail Use Built-In-Function “serialize(Struct):String” to create a String from Struct
Stacktrace The Error Occurred in
/admin/services.update.cfm: line 374
called from /admin/web.cfm: line 430
called from /admin/server.cfm: line 2

It’s all kind of weird. Does anyone have any idea what it could be?

Inspect Templates (CFM/CFC) Once ( Good )
Null Support Partial Support (CFML Default)
Key case Convert to upper case (CFML Default)
Local scope mode Classic (CFML Default)

Sorry about that, I have filed a bug against Lucee, please just try a more recent installer, i.e 5.3.3 or 5.3.4

Can you file a bug against the installer regarding the problem?
