Description

Important Note: This is a Community Fixlet, with no official support from HCL BigFix.  Because of the dynamic nature of Google Chrome updates, this Fixlet does not validate the sha1 or sha256 hashes of the downloaded Google Chrome installer.

This Fixlet attempts to update Google Chrome to the latest version available.  Computers will report Relevant if there is any version of Google Chrome installed, even if the version is already up-to-date.  The Fixlet will download the Enterprise version of Google Chrome from this page.

Important Note: This Fixlet will detect the existence of Google Chrome for both the consumer edition and the enterprise edition. Installing the enterprise edition of Google Chrome might not uninstall nor update the consumer edition. Additionally, problems might occur when installing the enterprise edition of Google Chrome on a computer that already has the consumer edition present. BigFix recommends that the consumer edition of Google Chrome is uninstalled before installing the enterprise edition. Use Fixlet message "Google Chrome - Consumer Edition Installed" (ID 14011003) to uninstall the consumer edition of Google Chrome.

Important Note: This Fixlet will remain Relevant even after upgrading Chrome to the latest available version.

Note: Google does not provide a way to detect if the application has a 32-bit or 64-bit architecture. The only other way to confirm architecture is to examine its uninstaller executable, which BigFix does not currently support.

It is assumed that only a 64-bit version of the application is installed on a 64-bit operating system. A 32-bit version of the application that is installed on a 64-bit operating system will be converted to a 64-bit version. Currently, the conversion has no known impact and no user action is required in relation to this conversion.

Note: The latest Google Chrome version available will be download at the time the Action is taken.  That version is downloaded and cached on the Root Server and Relays.  That version will continue to be distributed to clients, even if Google releases an updated Chrome version after the action is taken.  Clients that report to this action later, or Reapply this action after some period of time, will continue to deploy the version of Chrome that was available at the time the action was taken.
