Hey I was about to the ask a similar question, but for another extension. Is it possible to report on and also deploy chrome extension via kace or some script?

I use Chrome's policy functionality to deploy extensions:

I assume that you do this thru Group policy and not via kace?

  • Actually I push out the registry keys with KACE. My registry file includes the Chrome policies that I want set in addition to a custom key I use as a marker. I then have a custom inventory rule that checks for that marker and a managed install that installs the registry keys.

    Here is the CIR for one:
    RegistryValueEquals(HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Dickinson, ChromePolicies, BoslerLanguages-20160726)

    I find this is more reliable than using a script and I can make changes without needing all of the lab computers on at the same time. In my environment I don't have access to change group policy so it is easier for me to push the settings via the registry.
    • 1. Copy the .crx file to a location such as: C:\path\to\your\extension.crx
      2. Create the registry key:
      32-bit Windows: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Google\Chrome\Extensions\[id of your extension crx]
      64-bit Windows: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Google\Chrome\Extensions\[id of your extension crx]
      3. Create the following registry key values:

      32-bit Windows: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Google\Chrome\Extensions\[id of your extension crx]\path
      64-bit Windows: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Google\Chrome\Extensions\[id of your extension crx]\path
      TYPE: REG_SZ
      VALUE: "C:\path\to\your\extension.crx"

      32-bit Windows: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Google\Chrome\Extensions\[id of your extension crx]\version
      64-bit Windows: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Google\Chrome\Extensions\[id of your extension crx]\version
      TYPE: REG_SZ
      VALUE: [version of your .crx as specified in the manifest]

      I tried the above settings and created a registry
      while launching chrome it popups for Add extenstion or Remove extension
      Is there any way to force add , removing this popup

      while clicking on Remove extension and launching google chrome again its not re-popup again
