Chrome offline installer

It looks like my place of work has recently blocked whatever site the portable installer is going to to download Google Chrome. After looking through these forums it seems like I should be able to get the installer from somewhere else and put it in the same directory as the GoogleChromePortable installer. However this doesn't seem to be working.

In a directory I have the following:

43.0.2357.130_chrome64_installer.exe
43.0.2357.130_chrome_installer.exe
GoogleChromePortable_43.0.2357.130_online.paf.exe

What am I doing wrong?

Google Itself, Exact Files

Your work just blocked Google's own server if it can't download it.

Download this file and be sure it has an MD5 sum of 0e99a44322ad5bde7dc9d79d8cb88c9c. Then place that in the same directory as GoogleChromePortable_43.0.2357.130_online.paf.exe and it should use it. You'll need to download it at home or another location, likely.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Bug In Installer

Ah, figured it out. That version had a bug in the installer.ini. Download the file above, but rename it to 43.0.2357.124_chrome_installer.exe and it will work. Or just wait for the new version that's currently mirroring.

Renamed to 43.0.2357.124

Renamed to 43.0.2357.124_chrome_installer.exe but still have the same problem. Work also has sourceforge blocked so I cannot download the new GoogleChromePortable from here, will have to download at home and bring in.

Locked Down, Try Redirecting TEMP

Sorry, but your PC is too locked down for the installer to function. That MD5 dll is what the installer uses to verify that the chrome installer alongside it is the proper one. Your PC is set to disallow anything running from TEMP.

You could try redirecting TEMP. Basically you launch the PA.c Platform using a BAT file using something like this:

SET TEMP=X:\TEMP
SET TMP=X:\TMP
Start.exe

This assumes you have the PA.c Platform on your X drive and installed to root. Then you run the Chrome installer by using the option in the PA.c Platform's menu. You could also just place the chrome files in root as well and run GoogleChromePortable_43.0.2357.132_online.paf.exe instead of start.exe with the BAT file.
