While trying to install the latest version of Java recommended for my computer, I received the following errors. Error: applying transforms, verify that the specified transform paths are valid & Error: This installation package could not be opened. Verify that the package exists and you can access it.

The following was the solution that helped me:

If you removed any traces of failed installations, go ahead and try to download it again.
If using Windows XP, go to Start-my computer-double click on local C:- choose the documents and setting folder- choose the username (the name of the person who is logged in if multiple users are set up)- choose the application data folder- choose the Sun folder- choose the Java folder and look for the jre file version of the one you are trying to download and double click on that folder. Look for an image of a computer with a disk that reads Windows installer package and double click on that. It should then take you through the process of installation.

If you cannot find this folder, try to enable the option of showing hidden files or folders. Donít know if it will help but itís what I did before doing all this. You should be able to go to start-my computer-my documents on the left hand side and click the folder tab up top in your tool bar- click on view and look for the box that says show hidden files or folders.

I hope this helps, If not, shoot me an email and I will try to help you because I spent 3 days trying to download the latest java version so I know the aggravation you must feel.
My email address is vnessam@hotmail.com. Write Java help in the subject line so I will know its not junk mail! Good luck!!!! You can also do a Google search on that java error and lots of forums have different options to try. Lots of people are having the same problem.

i haven't been able to instal java after downloading it either - i get the same error message right after accepting the license agreement.
I downloaded and used the Installer Cleanup but there were no java related entries to delete in there!
So now i'm right back where i began
any help is appreciated!

I have posted this reply somewhere else in this forum on 05/09/2003:

From: Moe on 05/09/2003
Here is what i did (and it worked):
From the "control Panel", "Add/Remove Programs", I copied the name of the program I want to remove.
I went to "Start" then "run" and typed: regedit
In the "registry Editor" screen, I clicked on "Edit" then "Find"
I typed the program name exactly as shown in the "Add/remove programs".
I found the string, and to the left it said "Transforms".
I deleted this key from the registry then went back to "add/remove programs" and managed to rmove it.

I hope it will work for you too!

I have encountered the same problem when installing Palm OS 5 software for a new T3. Palm officially blew me off and said this was a Microsoft problem or I should contact the software provider (??!!). I have done everything except the snippet I get from this exchange; however, I only have one of the .mst files and cannot find the others to try this last idea. Can anyone tell me where to get these .mst files for Palm OS 5?

"error applying transforms"

I had this same problem and I came across this forum page looking for the answer. Now that I solved the problem for myself I took it upon myself to register here so I could submit how I was able to solve the problem.

The problem I had was with java, I was getting the "Error applying transforms" message and couldn't install it. Ran across some info on the Microsoft site that there is a folder called support tools on my XP cd. I was able to install these support tools to my programs folder. I couldn't make heads nor tails of all the little progs because there's about 50 all with abreviated names so I search "xp support tools" on google and found the microsoft site where they explain some of them. Lo and behold there's one called msicuu and what it does is list all the programs that are registered in microsoft installer and allows you to remove the troublesome one. For me - java. After that it installed.

Hope this helps.

Figured it out.
Go into regedit & search for the *.Mst file that it is looking for and delete the key with the MST file in it. (exported the folder for back up first)For me it was located in a subfolder of

HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Microsoft\Installer\Products

hope this helps someone else

For me this error message appeared after I replaced my Yamaha CD writer with a new CD writer made by MagicSpin.

The version of Nero I had been using with the Yamaha was Nero 5.5.5.1.
I uninstalled this version, and tried to install the new Nero that came with the MagicSpin. This is Nero 5.5.9.16.

Same error message.

I made it past this error message by inserting the previous Nero 5.5.5.1 CD and it showed that I had an option to remove this version. I did this, then I was able to install the newer version Nero 5.5.9.16.

Make sure you have uninistalled Nero using the CD, and not just the remove software option in Windows. This must have been where I didn't remove Nero correctly.

The above applies to this Compaq Deskpro computer using Windows 2000 Professional, with all current service packs and available updates.
Hope this helps someone.

just thought i would let you know that this error applies to the windows installer folder in your c:\windows directory, the transforms related to the files 1031.mst 1033.mst and 1036.mst which are all language transform parts of the install process, if you physically copy the three above files to the appropriate windows installer folder then this should resolve the matter

hope this helps chaps
