How to silently deploy Chrome on a remote host?

Here you’ll find complete instruction how to deploy Chrome on one remote host at once in Windows environment.

  1. Go to https://enterprise.google.com/chrome/chrome-browser/ and download proper msi.
  2. Put installer on some visible for everyone network path. For example: //YOUR_MAMA/share/googlechromestandaloneenterprise64.msi
  3. Install (if you still don’t have it) Psexec. Here you can read where you can find it.
  4. Run cmd an type the following command:
    psexec64 -s /user:domain\login -i \\REMOTE_COMPUTER "msiexec" /q /i \\YOUR_MAMA\share\googlechromestandaloneenterprise64.msi
  5. It will prompt you about your password – obviously type one tied to option domain/login.
  6. After few minutes cmd shall output error code 0 which means no error at all 🙂

Important things:

If you’ll get message that msiexec cannot access msi file, tweak your share privileges. Add read permission to Everyone.

Beware the permission problems ahead.
