I have downloaded the Google Chrome Enterprise MSI. works great for Deployment except when a consumer version of google chrome is found. then i am haunted by the dreaded error of "Your profile can not be used because it is from a newer version of Google Chrome" every time the user launches the browser. 

How can i customize the MSI to add some action to it to rename the Default Folder for google so profiles are not an issue on first startup?

All our company has is GPO to deploy by no SCCM or other tools

You can have these options:

1) Use GPO to deploy one script which would rename these profile on users machines.

2) In MSI add one custom action which would run when users is launching the shorcut(make it go for self heal first time by having some user specific data) and rename the profile.

3) During MSI installation you can read the user profile and rename the same ,I have posted this script in this forum,which you need to update a bit to make it as per your requirments.


Hope this helps.
