One of the ColdFusion 2016 servers that I'm responsible for managing suddenly stopped working after a simple reboot.
The hosting environment is Windows based and I found that the ColdFusion Application Server service would not start.
There were several Windows Event Log exceptions:

The system cannot find the file specified.
The ColdFusion 2016 Application Server service could not be started. Check the server "cfusion" log files for more information.

Since the ColdFusion files were still in the same location and the permissions had not changed I was a bit puzzled.
The CFUSION logs did not have any useful information.
