Ever had a transform corrupted by your packaging tool and received the dreaded error Database String Pool Corrupted in the installation log file ?

Help is (possibly) at hand.

I had one of these errors today - the first time I've ever seen it in fact - and found the following method resolved it :

1) Open the base MSI in ORCA

2) Click Apply Transform and browse to the corrupt transform

3) Click Generate Transform and supply a new name for the transform

4) Close Down ORCA, rename the original corrupt transform to Corrupt.MST and rename the one you generated to the original name

That's it ! In my own case a 140KB corrupt transform was reduced to 120KB after being regenerated.

Just thought I'd share this experience with the community [:)]
