The PortableApps Chrome installer by default requires a robust Internet connection to download the actual binaries from google.com.
It used to be the case that if you had the "alternative" standalone installer EXE - don't remember if it was the system-wide or the per-user version - in the same folder as the PA.com installer, the latter would automagically detect the former and go ahead and install even if there were no connection to the Internet available.
Is this functionality is no longer possible?
If so, please consider this a request to have it restored, or (even better) to make the PA.com installer self-contained if possible (I'm thinking licensing issue? Is there an existing issue report at google.com we could +1?)
If not, then please let me know what I'm doing wrong.
Use case is a multi-remote-user environment (third-world NGO) widely implementing PA.com's Chrome, non-technical end users only occasionally connected, often with very sketchy net access, want to distribute updates so they can upgrade-in-place keeping their profiles intact.
Thanks in advance. . .
