    Transform path error when uninstalling 8.1.2 after applying security update

      I have been testing a customized install of 8.1.2 and noticed that when you try to remove 8.1.2 after applying the latest security update, an error pops. "Error applying transforms. Verify that the specified transform paths are valid". Looking in the registry you can see an odd entry in the "TRANSFORMS" string value entry under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\INSTALLER\PRODUCTS\68AB67CA7DA73301B7448A2100000030\. The value is changed to "@AcroRead.mst;C:\Program Files\Adobe\Reader 8.0\Setup Files\{AC76BA86-7AD7-1033-7B44-A81200000003}\RdrSU.mst" after applying the security update. You can edit the path to remove everything after @AcroRead.mst and then the software can be uninstalled. This problem does not happen if the install is not customized using a transform. I would like to deploy this software with the security update but do not want problems removing the software in the future. Please advise...
