Error applying Transforms, Palm Zire 22
Posted on 2008-02-05
Having trouble with my Palm Zire 22(Z22). The software that comes with the Palm to manage it worked fine until a few days ago. The computer was part of a workgroup, a server was added, the computer added to a domain and since then the software will not work. When we launch the program the following error comes up: Error applying transforms. I am not able to see the version of the software and the user doesn't know as well. Also, the network person who was hired to set this up quit before completeing the job, so I'm left to pick up the pieces. As fare as the user/president of the company knows, the tech added to the computer to the domain and that is it. Common sense says there is more to the story and only the tech knows the answer.
I found several people had this issue and they used Micorsoft's unintstall utility to remove the program. Next they would re-install and would be back in business. I have tried this utility but it will not uninstall the Palm software even after a complete shut down and restart. Has anyone seen this before? If so, what had to be done to fix it? I will try to boot to the last known good cinfiguration and keep my fingers crossed, I'm looking for other ideas in case this doesn't work.
I also will not be able to get my hands on this computer again until late this afternoon. Any suggestions that are given I will not be able to respond until then if they were successful or not.
Thanks for the help.
