Hello All! I did search for this problem and I apologize if there is a post somewhere because I didn't find anything.

Upon attempting to update Java, I have received the following message:

Windows Installer Error Applying transforms: verify that the specified paths are valid.

I have Java 2, version 1.5.0. I ran the update when my Java icon appeared on my task bar telling me that an update was available. I downloaded the update but cannot install.

Anyone have a suggestion?

Thanks!!

Hi Mark!

Thanks for the welcome and also for the link to correct my problem. The only thing is (and isn't there always something??) I would need the updated path for the newer version as the link has the path for version 1.4.2_04. I could have probably tried to figure out the difference between the two but that was not something I was willing to do. (no... I'm not a sissy; I just know my limits!) Therefore, do you have a continuing answer??

Much appreciated,
Maureen

I know this is a lot of reading, scroll down to the troubleshooting section. This should include all versions. You can also submit a bug report directly to Sun

Well, this is (almost) funny. I tried a few things after reading your reply and I was getting very frustrated because nothing was working. I ended up finding a post that stated they had the same error and found a "quick fix", so I was very interested! He said that after doing everything that I had done, (including the Win32 self extractor) he found that the downloaded file was still in the Sun/Java folder. He (and I) ran the .exe directly from that location and it installed without incident. Of course, I was elated because I have been trying to rectify this for some time now but then my curiosity kicked in and I wanted to know why this occured? If you care to reply with any idea as to why, that would be great but I also wanted to let you know this "easier way" worked like a charm. Thanks for all of your help!

Maureen :thumbsup:
