    Chrome installation fails as installer requires an update to windows.
    Manually running windows update shows there are no high priority or optional
    updates outstanding. Any explanations as to problem and what update they
    are talking about?? Appreciate help in resolving

    I doubt that Windows needs an update installed unless it's a reference
    to install the most recent version of Windows Installer for XP -

    FWIW, you should post this to the Google Chrome Install/Uninstall issues
    forum -

    Thanks for response and links. I've downloaded installer package but note
    it was date September 2010. I assume this would have been downloaded during
    subsequent patch Tuesday updates. I've also posted to Chrome forum. Thanks
    again

  4. No, I don't think this is something Windows Update will offer you yet.

    There are many updates that most people don't need which only get to Windows
    Update when a service pack comes out.

    Chrome should be telling you that you need it and directing you to a web
    page to download it.
