The MSI installer only works in Windows, it currently installs the latest Dev Channel build and it seems to be targeted toward enterprise users. The link to the MSI installer will probably be added to Chrome’s download page in the near future.
The current user-level installation experience doesn’t require elevation (installing at system-level does), and most users don’t know or care about system-level installs. That said, it would probably be a good idea to have some links on the download pages that say “click here for a system- level install or MSI“, so interested/advanced users could find it easily as part of the normal download install flow. Not sure what this will look like yet.
If you have a
mini_installer.exe, you can just run ‘
mini_installer.exe --system-level‘. If you have an untagged standalone installer (an exe that fails if you run it without command-line parameters), let me know and I’ll send you a commmand line for it.
This msi installer is not having any options and will install Chrome web browser directly at
Thus, making Google Chrome available for all users, accessible through the Start Menu.
