I am trying to install the newest java version and when doing it via the web I get this error, "Error applying transforms. Verify that the specified transform are valid". I thought ok, I will do it manualy. So I downloaded it and tried..."Error applying transforms. Verify that the specified transform are valid". I unistalled the older version of Java. Tired again and..."Error applying transforms. Verify that the specified transform are valid" So I looked around the Java sight and found no help about this. So if any one can help I would appreciate it.

" I had this problem with JRE 1_5_0_09 - after beating it to death, I finally got it.

Note that JRE did NOT appear in my add/remove programs list - also it did not appear when I ran the windows install clean-up utility msicuu2.exe.

However, when I browsed to

\Documents and Settings\User\Local Settings\Application Data\Sun\Java

I found a folder named jre1.5.0_09 containing the MSI file which installed JRE perfectly.

I am not sure if everyone with this problem will have the JRE file there, but I imagine that if it's NOT there, placing it there from another system and then running it might also work.

good luck. "
