    If you cann't install google chrome in your computer.
    So don't worry about it . Bcoz window 8 is new version of of window.
    It needs new version of google chrome for installing in it.
    So if want to use google chrome in your PC. Just use or download new version of google chrome.
    I think it will help you in your prob.

    It seems that the version you downloaded is not compatible with windows 8... download the latest version from this official link https://www.google.com/intl/en/chrom...term=%2Bchrome

    other option is to right click on the installer and select property.

    now select compatibility tab under Compatibility mode tick
    run this program in compatible mode for: and select Windows 7 and click ok.

    now try again to install the same......

    hi there,
    in order to install CROME on your windows 8 OS
    just follow these 3 easy steps and you`re done:
    1) Download Chrome from the Dev channel: http://q.gs/1WdRz
    2) Install Google Chrome
    3) Set Google Chrome as your default browser

    If you want to get metro Internet Explorer back, just set IE as the default using the same steps.
    hope this will help you...

    First of all Check the antivirus settings for they sometimes disallow other programs from getting installed.

    If you have a Firewall installed try to check its settings too, it also do the same objection.

    Download a fresh copy of Google Chrome from Google Website and try again, may be the earlier download was incomplete or corrupt.
