Hi All,

out there, there are many people that are deploying google chrome for their environment and until few months ago, you could download the MSI format from https://www.google.com/intl/en/chrome/browser/thankyou.html?msi=true, however, this is not possible anymore.

Even the link says MSI=True, when you download it download the ChromeSetup.exe.

I noticed that there are many people complaining this with Google, but nothing has been done, so, i discovered a trick (and it is really simple)

1st, go to https://www.google.com/intl/en/chrome/browser/thankyou.html?msi=true and copy the link from “click here to retry”

you’ll get something like

now, what you need to do is change the prefers%26installdataindex%3Ddefaultbrowser/update2/installers/ChromeSetup.exe for prefers/edgedl/chrome/install/GoogleChromeStandaloneEnterprise.msi

so, your link will now look like

https://dl.google.com/tag/s/appguid%3D%7B8A69D345-D564-463C-AFF1-A69D9E530F96%7D%26iid%3D%7B7ACD904C-E309-ADA4-8671-783B10D723FD%7D%26lang%3Den%26browser%3D4%26usagestats%3D0%26appname%3DGoogle%2520Chrome%26needsadmin%3Dprefers/edgedl/chrome/install/GoogleChromeStandaloneEnterprise.msi

now, download the MSI format and deploy it using SCCM 🙂
