Chrome refusing to install on Windows 7 Pro (networked)
Posted on 2012-09-12
Here's a decent brick wall to bang your head against.
Brand new HP Folio 13 (that's the new thinish one) running WIndows 7 Pro x64 connected to our existing SBS 2011 server.
The client runs Chrome extensively.
When I try and download Chrome it won't install period.
If I download the ChromeSetuip.exe manually and then run it I get the following message:
"Installation Failed. The Chrome installer failed to start."
If I run it "As Administrator" it loads although doesn't appear to have gone through the normal Chrome installation procedure.
When I exit and try and find it it is nowhere to be seen.
The user's account link to Chrome is, form their existing settings:
And then says the specified path does not exist.
It did on his previous machine.
Anyone got any ideas what is going on? I though Chrome lived in Programs (x86)?
