Download Google Chrome Complete Offline Installer Windows 8.1 (Latest 2014)

Download Google Chrome Complete Offline Installer Windows 8.1 (Latest 2014). This article helps you download Google Chrome complete offline installer.

I have included the link to download the complete offline installer for Chrome. And yes, I have tested this on Windows 8 and Windows 8.1.

If you have trouble installing Google Chrome using the normal installer, the complete offline installer set up file will help you get the job done, even on Windows 8 the latest from Microsoft.

I was helping a friend here at work, and I had to open his browser. I fired up Google Chrome and was like …. OMG!!! this is very oooold version of Chrome, with its blue interface…….

Download Google Chrome Complete Offline Installer Latest Version

But, why is he using Chrome v.6 when there is an auto updater for Chrome keeping everyone on the latest version? Uh, he is inside our corporate network, and the auto update is disabled. I’ve been using an alternate method to keep my Chrome up-to-date on my work PC.

So, that’s the method I want to share with you today. It is nothing but downloading a complete set up file for offline installation. How is this different from the normal Chrome installation? I’ll tell you.

Chrome Offline File

When you download Chrome using the normal link, it downloads a small file and then when you run that, that little program downloads the rest of the stuff you need and completes the installation. When your network is blocking this download, you need the complete file for your computer to the installation to take place, otherwise, it will get stuck half way.

You will need the complete set up file if you are installing Chrome without an internet connection. You can download this the file from the link I am going to share here to download Chrome on a different computer, copy it to the one where you need it installed without internet connection.

Links To Download Complete Offline Installer 2014

I’ve got two links to share today. Both are for Windows users. It will work on Windows Xp, Vista and 7. First one “Alternate installer for one user account ” This file will install Google Chrome only for the current user. (If someone else, say your family or partner, using a different login ID, they won’t even see Chrome)

Second one : Alternate installer for all user accounts downloads a file which will install Chrome on a system level. Which means, every user on the computer will get their own installations of Google Chrome.

Updating Existing Installation With Offline Installer

It is possible to update or upgrade your current Google Chrome installation to the latest version using this method.

  1. First, download the file of your choice.
  2. Close Google Chrome.
  3. Run the Setup file.
  4. Open Chrome when completed.
  5. Check the version of Chrome now (from settings wrench menu, click “about chrome”)
  6. Follow this method each time there is an update to Chrome

Hope you learned something useful today. Please let me know if you have any comments/suggestions/questions. If you use Google plus, give me a plus one!!

    I wrote a simple HTML page that automatically generates download URLs for Chrome of different branches on different platforms and with options such as standalone installer, installing for all users, etc.

  2. Our workplace blocks Google Update from running so normal updates aren’t possible. We have special permission from IT to run Chrome though for our web dev jobs, I guess it’s more of a “if you can figure out how to, go right ahead” type of thing.

    I regularly pull down the chrome_installer.exes that Google Update fetches and installs normally. Then I wrap it with a batch file that does roughly what Google Update does:

    @echo off
    title Install Google Chrome
    setlocal enableextensions
    echo Google Chrome will now close if it is running. Press CTRL+C or close this
    echo window to abort, or
    pause
    for %%x in (“%~dp0*.stable”) do set ver=%%x
    copy /y “%ver%” “%TEMP%\chrome_installer.exe” >nul
    if errorlevel 1 goto error
    taskkill /f /im chrome.exe >nul 2>nul
    echo Running installer, please wait…
    start /wait “” “%TEMP%\chrome_installer.exe”
    if errorlevel 1 goto error2
    del “%TEMP%\chrome_installer.exe”
    start “” “%USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe”
    if errorlevel 1 goto error3
    title %COMSPEC%
    exit /b
    :error
    echo Could not find installer!
    pause
    title %COMSPEC%
    exit /b
    :error2
    del “%TEMP%\chrome_installer.exe”
    echo An error occurred installing Chrome:
    type “%TEMP%\chrome_installer.log”
    pause
    title %COMSPEC%
    exit /b
    :error3
    echo Could not launch Chrome after install!
    pause
    title %COMSPEC%
    exit /b

    I name the files AA.B.CCCC.DD.stable or .beta/.dev/.canary and change the batch file accordingly for each version. The canary one adds the –chrome-sxs flag to the installer too, of course.

    I don’t pull down canary anymore though since Google changed where they store the latest canary installer and I’m not sure where they moved it to.

    This worked fine until IT started running scripts on our machines at regular intervals to kill chrome.exe (note that we still have permission to run Chrome, but our IT guy didn’t want to make waves by requesting the scripts not run for us, since Chrome is not technically “approved”). Considering we code, test, and run a very complicated web app that does not save or restore its application state (if the tab crashes you gotta start over) and sometimes completing a run in that app can take over an hour depending on the specific project we’re working on, this quickly got annoying.

    I quickly discovered Chrome does not mind if you change its filename to, say, iexplore.exe, except that about:memory breaks being unable to find chrome.exe running anywhere.

    To streamline the process I took my Google Chrome Portable wrapper I wrote for portableapps.com and made a special “Internet Explorer Portable”-branded version with the rename built in. GCP uses a similar process as described earlier to download Chrome, except instead of running chrome_installer.exe it extracts the files by hand and adds some command line flags at runtime to get Chrome running without the normally required Google Update registry entries.

    I may still tweak some things since I discovered whenever IT upgrades flash (not often) their script kills iexplore.exe processes…

    Hi, I found this site linked from a Google help forum, because I can’t install Chrome (or Hangouts) on my Windows 8 laptop. It’s because neither can connect to the internet.

    So I tried the Stand-Alone version (installing as admin), which technically did install, however it too wouldn’t connect to the internet. I dabbled with Chrome’s advanced settings, but their internet settings took me directly to Windows internet settings, so I canceled, fearing I’d inadvertently change all my internet settings.

    I also turned off Windows 8’s default Firewall (both private & public), yet that made no difference either.

    Chrome works on my Android thru my home-wifi. FF & IE both work fine on my win8 laptop. My win8 laptop settings have been dabbled with by both me and husband, trying to figure out where MS hid things with their annoying Start “screen”, then when trying to network our laptops together, then to the SmartTV. So it’s entirely likely that one of us borked something that ONLY affects Google apps.
    Thanks,

    I have a Dell XPS 10 tablet, just upgraded from Windows 8 to 8.1. I have downloaded the Google Chrome file, but when trying to install it, I don’t get that same error screen. I just get one that says the file can not be run. My hope is that there will be a Windows app created for Google Chrome, otherwise, it will not be available to myself and others with the same situation,
