I got just java to download but when i try to install it , I get a error saying
ERROR applying transforms. Verify that the specified transform paths are valid.
I don';t know what to do. Please help
The same happens to me too. I use Vista Home Premium. I have all security turned off (i.e. Norton AV, Windows Firewall, Windows Defender). This has been happening for almost 1 month for me, and today I wanted to use a site that requires Java, however, I couldn't because Java doesn't exist on my computer. I'll even settle for a lower version of Java if it can get past this error.
Here is how I solved this on my Windows XP SP3 System.
During install I was getting "Error Applying Transforms".
Navigate to c:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Temp and locate the MSI installer that is created temporarily during install. The file will be a random filename, in my case bfc061.msi. This file only exists for a few seconds so you have to be watching the folder for the file to appear. I copied the MSI file to my desktop and ran it. Java installed successfully. Note: you may have to try copying the file a few times as it's in use.
If you managed to install the jre on another computer, you can grab the MSI installer from
C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Sun\Java\jre1.x.x
See the link below.
Hope this information helps.
