Software Deployment Question
Google Chrome Enterprise Silent Install
Hello I'm new here,
I've been trying to get google chrome to install silently with the Enterprise MSI and it seems as if google went out of there way to make this process difficult.
I tried: msiexec.exe /i "GoogleChromeStandaloneEnterprise.msi" /qb
I tried to view the contents of the MSI thinking it was merely a wrapper for something else and found that there are no files!!
I tried repackaging with Adanved Installer, "wait while windows configures google chrome" then nothing happens...
I would have tried AppDeploy Repackager (snapshot) but it cannot create an MSI from another MSI.
How are you guys getting this to work? It seems like everyone is getting this but me.

I found some issues to with the installer. This is how I got around the seemingly corupt MSI.
go to the download page for Enterprise Ed. Select the 64bit version if needed. Click the download button and untick the stuff. When your browser has the "download" button for the MSI, don't click it. Wait for the page to finish loading behind the D/L request. Alt click the "Retry Download" button and copy the link location. Paste it into notepad and trim the path from the .../tag/s [delete all the stuff here] /dl/chrome...., then paste the new path in your browser. if you get the same page and D/L popup right away, you got it, then go for a coffee :)
I found the download somehow sometimes puts all that junk in the bottom of the MSI. if you trim the path, it doesn't go in the MSI.
Just what I have found from experience.
