    Default Unable to launch google chrome in windows 8 CP

    Hi all,

    I downloaded google chrome from a download site. After I finish the installation, I tries to launch it, nothing happens, no matter I click the icon on the metro UI or the icon on the task bar. I checked the task manager. Its in background process.

    How can i start google chrome? Thanks.

    When I installed Google Chrome it placed a desktop icon for Chrome. It also placed a tile on the Metro UI. Either of these icons should open Chrome. If this does not work, then uninstall Chrome, download from here and reinstall.

    Hi Ronnie,

    Welcome to our forum.

    Make sure you download the complete and uncorrupt file from the official website.

    Ronnie, Welcome to the Forum!

    You will probably have a much more enjoyable & enhanced Windows 8 Beta experience by installing 8 RP. It's been available since 05/31 & is now the official & final Windows 8 Beta.

    Many apps that didn't run on CP does on RP, it's simply a more complete version, with updates frequently. Don't know if CP is still receiving updates, as I've had RP from Day 1 of availability.

    Everything that you need to know to move forward to Windows 8 is here. Make certain to follow all instructions to the letter for best results.

    Best of Luck,
    Cat

    Another reason to clean install Win 8 RP is that when Win 8 is released in October, Win 8 RP qualifies for the $40 Upgrade Pricing, Win 8 CP DOES NOT qualify for this reduced price.
