Need help to install Chrome.exe silently via the KACE

Hi guys,

I am new with the KACE. I am trying to push Google Chrome .exe file to my test systems via the KACE.  But I am getting error.

I see the file is downloaded on the test computer under the KACE-Downloads folder but the installation is failing. 

If I do the Managed installation and push any .msi file it works but does not want to work with .exe files.

I tried the following commands: 


Setup.exe /s/v" /qn

Any ideas how to push .exe files to a system via the KACE ?


Thank you in advance.

  • Thank you very much guys for your help! I am just wondering for any other .exe file which I would love to push and install it on the Windows computers using the KACE . Is it possible or KACE works with .msi files only ? - sash2003 3 years ago

Hi sash2003,

for chrome i would suggest to use the msi for enterprises: https://cloud.google.com/chrome-enterprise/browser/download

You can simply push the installation like this and can configure the group policy objects (proxy, bookmarks, sync, download location and much more) over desktop authority:


Kind Regards


  • Just a heads up, if you use the GPO to allow users to roam the Chrome settings (this incl extensions) within the organisations (whether logged into a Google account or not), it will disable syncing with the between the google cloud and the Google account, ie users logged into Chrome with a Google account with not have bookmarks or history sync'ed. - rileyz 3 years ago
  • Hi Timo ! Thank you very much for your help! I am just wondering If I could install .exe file on the windows machine using the KACE . Do you think it's possible ? or KACE works with .msi files only ? - sash2003 3 years ago
    • Hey sash2003,
      sure this i s possible. You can attach everything in KACE SMA and execute it with a commannd line. It doesn't matter if this is a .zip, .msi, .exe, .bat or whatever. You can have a look on page 503 of the admin handbook. Otherwise feel free to contact your local sales rep for help.

      Kind Regards

  • I didn't find where this package provides an option for specifying a custom installation path. Did I miss that, or is it simply not an option? - JLankford 3 years ago
