Hello,
I have been trying to remove Nero7 from my computer to install the newer version, nero8.
I run into a problem, and i probably made it worst.
OS: Windows XP Pro 64bits
I tried to unuinstall by using the Window Add/Remove Programs function and i got the following message: "Error applying transfors. Verify that the specified transform paths are valid"

So what did I do? I manually erased the whole Nero folder directly from the disk, then used CCleaner to remove whatever was left of Nero7 in the registry.

I then tried to install the new version, but it keeps tellingme that a previous version is still installed and needs to be removed before it proceeds.
The installer even ofers to remove the old version, but I keep getting the same messsage error about the transform paths.

What else can I do??

Thanks for the help.

Hmm...there might be some more clinging on your registery lines or even services. What you can try is to get a good Uninstaller programme that can remove improperly removed softwares. One is Uninstallter 2007. It might be helpful. Good luck. It is too risky to have you editing the registry line and removing everything regarding Nero. So keep your fingers cross. :thumbsup:

I thought one should not clean the registry entry for a particular application if you intend to re-install the same application or another version of it, or am I wrong?

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

Yes :thumbsup:.

Just think about it.

When a program installs, it has all the file relationships it needs to function...coded in. It will create, in conjunction with the O/S, all the files and reg entries it needs to function.

Why should it need any of that carried over from a previous effort, especially when those prior files may be older, corrupt, etc.?

This is why when a given program has a problem, the easiest/smartest thing to do is...just uninstall it and reinstall it (with a new set of files/relationships).
