I can't uninstall Gears of war on my PC!!! GOW is an EPIC FAIL!!! - Page 2

post #11 of 17
I haven't been in Windows for a while as I've been away from my main pc, but isn't there a repair option for some programs in control panel? Have you tried that?

I got this from another forum



I dont know if you want to try this but i figure youve got nothing to lose.
Ok I tried it, and it worked.

I'm trying to reinstall the game but I get an error message that says:

Error applying transforms. Verify that the specified transform paths are valid.: C:\\Windows\\Installer\\{1170D24F-42B7-40CF-AA1B-6395CE562354}\\1034.mst

just checked that folder and in fact, the file exists but I don't know what's going on now :S

any ideas?

Download RevoUninstaller and run it. It's meant for this sort of thing

I used that too, in fact it did help because it deleted all the registry entries that were related to gears of war, the only problem I have now is that I can't reinstall it :S

damn this game IS annoying, i've never seen a game with so many bugs

Please don't resurrect old threads from death. This was totally unnecessary.
