View Full Version : Updates for Google Chrome for XP SP3

12-06-2011, 12:49 AM
Hi All,

When I try to update Chrome for XP SP3 by selecting "About Google Chrome" in the "Customise & Control Google Chrome" menu (spanner icon, top right-hand corner) I get a "Update server not available (error: 3)" message. What's going on? I have not problems in updating Chrome for Windows 7.

Try this

This fixed my error 3 problem (this is for winxp, the folder for vista would be c:\users\<username>\appdata\local\google\update):

open a command prompt, and type in the following (after replacing <your username>
with your username):

cd "C:\Documents and Settings\<your username>\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Update\"

Then run:

GoogleUpdate.exe /RegServer

From here

I use the fileHippo update service . It always tells me when there is a Chrome update but I have to admit with version 13 it's getting real slow to access websites. Sometimes I can wait 10 seconds + for a page to start to load and this in on several PCs at home and work.. Ive game back to FF 5 as my secondary browser
