Info about folder in AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application

hey guys,

I was seeing this folder in my appdata folder for long time and seems it contains updates to chrome.
here is the full path, \AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application.
it contains some other files and specifically two folders named, 17.0.963.56 and 17.0.963.79, which are named exactly as chrome versions.

and here is a snip of a inside that 17.0.963.79 folder,

my question is, as you can see, it has a folder named as installer and it contains files named chrome.7z(84mb) and setup.exe(1.4mb), can I use these files as standalone installer for chrome in later time or in different machine? I know downloading chrome isnt much of weight, but just the curiosity.

(Note: chrome is updated to latest version above. I tried clicking and running this setup.exe in windows but nothing happened. and inside that 7z file, it contains every file on this path, \AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\17.0.963.79 contains.)

thank you all.

My guess is that you wont be able to install Google Chrome from these files. I believe they are just the update installers.

As you said Google Chrome doesnt carry much weight. Just save the installer onto your PC if needed.
