Decrypting Coldfusion files encrypted with Adobe cfencode.exe utility

See for some background. Three options as far as I can make out, I have used is the AB Positive tool (it worked fine under Windows XP, doesn’t seem to work with Windows 7) and the AdeptCFDecrypt (works under Windows 7 but the backup source file doesn’t do anything so take a backup beforehand)).
