Hi,
The setup in our environment is Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 10 workstation clients. I'm trying to accomplish the task of making Google Chrome as the default browser on the Windows 10 workstations.

The following options are exhausted:
1. Google GPO template and setting the default browser to Chrome didn't work
2. Dism.exe to obtain defaultassociations.xml didn't work. I don't have the GPO > Administrative Template > "Set a default associations configuration" option.
3. I don't want to push a chrome.msi package everytime since we have already installed Chrome on all our workstations.
4. Downloaded the latest ADMX files from Microsoft site but they don't have the required options

I'm wondering if upgrading the server to Windows Server 2012 is a requirement?

Help is much appreciated.

This link should do the trick for you--applies to Windows 10, if this option is not available to you in Server 2008 then I would say Yes to you question (if upgrading the server to Windows Server 2012 is a requirement), I checked a 2008 server and this setting is NOT there but it DOES NOT have the latest ADMX files; however my 2012 does have this setting.
