Google Chrome roaming profiles

I'm testing Google Chrome in our organization and cannot get it to successfully redirect user data to the roaming profile. I'm using Google's GPO template, but whenever I open Chrome, I get the following error:

"your profile could not be opened correctly"

Has anyone had any luck with this? I can't seem to get the "always allow plugins" option to work correctly either.

Delete folder C:\Users\{username}\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Web Data
That should fix the error

Sedgwick,
I appreciate the response, but this would not work in my situation. I'm trying to push this out to 200 users. So far, I've tested 10 machines and they all come up with the same error. I can't go deleting these files for every user on every machine.

Is there another way to resolve this issue... or is Chrome just not ready for central management on networks yet?

I understand . Maybe chrome is not what u need.
U can try on 1 user see if it works and i can provide u a script which can apply this fix on all serverds/users.

Yes, I've tried this with 10 different users and machines and no luck. The same error keeps coming up and even after deleting the web files, it comes back.
