I am trying to load PCCillin on to my Win2000Pro computer having gone through a major meltdown after 'updating my drivers' thanks to the Microsoft update programme, and as a result having to reload Win2k and a lot of programmes. PCcillin is the only one that won't go back in, I get this error message:

'Error applying transforms. Verify that the specified transform paths are valid'.

Any help appreciated, thanks, Heather.

Moral of the story: If it ain't broke, don't fix it! :mad:

Got quite excited when I saw my exact problem there in black and white! Unfortunately the link to the 'windows installer cleanup utility' doesn't exist any more. Had a browse through the ms site but couldn't find it as a download. Seems to have been put into XP, but not earlier versions.

Any idea where I can find it (I think it's called msciu.exe) for Win2000?

That's if it will be any different from the other uninstallation processes I have tried. The add and remove programs would not uninstall PCcillin so I could try a clean re-install, so I downloaded a little programme called Your Uninstaller which seemed to do a very thorough job, then I manually removed absolutely everything else I could find that was still left over. It was everywhere!

Then restarted the computer again, and tried again, still the same error message.

It should be on the windows 2000 cd.

I found it!

It's on this page here:

(not on the cd) it's now called msicuu2, and it worked a treat :)

Thanks all, great job.
