Portable Chrome installer didn't install startup file and Chrome won't load

Chrome Portable updated a few days ago. installed on a ramdisk. Appdata\Google is still on the hard disk from when when I had Chrome there.

This file, "GoogleUpdateCore.exe, is set to run at startup and the startup entry points to c:\appdata\google\… I am unable to find the file anywhere.

So when I use the AutoHotkey hotkey that I set up, it comes up with an error box that says that "companion programs not running".

This is an issue for people working on the update program as well as my personal frustration. Can anyone help me?

Thanks,
Steven

Possible solution - testing

I downloaded the .paf and reinstalled Chrome. At the end of the iinstall it asked me if I wanted to run Chrome so I said yes and it ran. Hope it runs with the hotkey.
