Till now we’re familiar with the Chrome installation failed error that occurs when installer fails to start, that happens when you try to install Chrome online, yesterday to install Chrome 47, when users downloaded and ran latest Chrome standalone installer aka ChromestandaloneSetup.exe by visiting this page http://www.google.com/chrome/eula.html?system=true&standalone=1, they’ve got ‘Unknown Installer Error‘.

Chrome Unknown Installer Error

Chrome team has acknowledged the issue and fixed it by updating the installers on their side that are now working fine without throwing that error.

“Standalone installers should be working again (but will install .106, not .111). Sometime later today, these will be updated to working .111 installers. ”
