How to Run Google Chrome on Windows 7 64 bit Version
I've just used the beta version of chrome myself, runs fine with no modification, only the non beta version has issues running in windows 7 in my experience.

Or run the 2.0.170 dev build which works just fine.

I tried that beta....It gave me an error while installing and I still had to do it. Then I un-installed it and tried again. Then I re-installed windows (was going to anyway) and tried it again.....the beta does not work for me on 7057 or 7068.

I was leery to try the beta on my new 7068 so I didn't. I just un-installed and re-installed 2.0.169.1 and it gave me the "this program did not install correctly" but seems to be running fine. It kept my favorites and cookies too. I don't know what's up.

One strange thing...installing chrome 2 erased my appdata - local low folder for a while. Chrome needs to just install like any other program. I don't like the way it installs.

That's the build I meant, it's listed as the beta build. The non-beta build is still 1.x(...) not 2.0(...).
