Re: Getting Error 4 while trying to update? Tomoya Kawasaki 8/15/11 8:54 AM
Hi Cutiekulitz, 

Did you install Facebook's video call plug-in? 

Lastly, would you like to try uninstalling and use the alternate installer? 
Thanks,

Getting Update Error 4. How do I know if I have auto-updating blocked?
Re: Getting Error 4 while trying to update? Tomoya Kawasaki 8/17/11 4:32 PM
@cmhelmich, 

Did you install the Facebook's video call plug-in? Or did you install any plug-in recently? 

To block auto-updating, you'll need to edit system registry, have you done that recently? 

Thanks,
TK

I tried to play a game (Angry Birds), but when I tried to update my Chrome, it said that it was already updated by my Angry Birds still won't work. I tried restarting my computer and Chrome, but it would not work. Help would be appreciated.

Hi booots01, 

Have you installed Facebook video call plug-in lately? Or have you installed any plug-in just recently? 

Where did you see the error 4 at? In the About box (wrench > About Chrome)? 

Thanks
Re: Getting Error 4 while trying to update? Nelson Cruz 12/14/11 5:33 PM
I also have this problem. No, I didn't install Facebook video call plug-in, or any other plug-in or app lately. I did have error 3 a while ago.

Yes, I see this "error 4" in the About box.
Re: Getting Error 4 while trying to update? Nelson Cruz 12/16/11 7:53 AM
No more error 4 today. Thanks.

Re: Getting Error 4 while trying to update? goliath27 3/21/12 1:13 AM
"Where did you see the error 4 at? In the About box (wrench > About Chrome)?"

I have been experiencing several Google chrome related problems.

1.when a Youtube video plays, I only receive audio and sometimes a black screen via embedded on Facebook.

2.Adobe Flash Player has a similar problem, when told to resolve problem through settings and to disable "Enable Hardware Acceleration", a black screen on the player or script blocks me from seeing what I am doing.

3.I can not download, When I try to download anything, I receive "Interrupted".

4.Lastly, I was told to check the (wrench > About Chrome) and saw
"Update server not available (error 4)".

I am frustrated, I love Google chrome and have been reverted into using Mozilla Firefox. Please help.

Re: Getting Error 4 while trying to update? goliath27 3/21/12 1:15 AM
P.s. I did not download facebook video plugin and have made sure that I have not blocked auto-updating.
Re: Getting Error 4 while trying to update? k4rizma 3/29/12 1:54 PM
I've setup a GPO to roll out google chrome to a group of users on my AD domain. I've added in the Google Chrome and Google Update admin templates to the GPO.

I've gone in and explicitly allowed Google Chrome, Google Chrome Binaries and Google Chrome Frame to be insatlled/updated Enabled/allowed.

When I go to the wrench >> About and chrome checks for updates I get error 4 returned when trying to download the update.

Update server not available (error: 4)


Thanks for any help you can give!

Re: Getting Error 4 while trying to update? k4rizma 3/30/12 1:02 PM
Tomoya,

I have everything enabled to allow updates and installations using Group Policy.

Is there something I'm missing here?

Re: Getting Error 4 while trying to update? ~Zander 6/4/12 10:07 AM
I have the same issue as k4rizma does.  I would love to get some feedback on how to fix this.

Thanks!

Re: Getting Error 4 while trying to update? k4rizma 6/4/12 10:14 AM
Hey Zander,

Seems this thread has been forgotten about.

Error 4 on windows XP right?  Its looking for administrative privileges to upgrade.

After forcing the GPO to a win7 machine I was finally prompted for admin credentials and if I supplied them the updates work.  Otherwise you will need to manually download the MSI and update your users manually.  

It seems security patches are done automatically while versions have to be done manually.

Hope this helps.

Its looking for administrative privileges
Re: Getting Error 4 while trying to update? iOSBry 8/1/12 1:25 PM
Administrative privileges are not supposed to be required, correct? My scenario is as follows:

Windows XP with SP3 -
1) Chrome Group policy configured and enabled on my PC's
     1a) Chrome/Google Update policy properly enabled and configured to auto-update
2) Chrome v20 .msi installed as an SYSTEM user via SCCM package deployment
3) non-Admin logs in and Chrome is not auto-updated
4) Launch Chrome v20, click on wrench in toolbar and then about Google Chrome and receive Update server not available (error:4).

Is auto-update not going to work for non-admins?


Re: Getting Error 4 while trying to update? k4rizma 8/1/12 1:57 PM
If you apply the policy to a windows 7 machine admin credentials pop up.

If no credentials are supplied, error 4.

This is for version updates and not security updates I believe.  Unless there is a way to unblock the auto-update from requiring admin priv's.  If you do find something like that please share.

Hello,

I'm getting an error 4 chrome won't update.
I am managing chrome on clients account from my server.
I did not block auto update.

Can you help?

Re: Getting Error 4 while trying to update? Erik Pasco 9/28/12 6:08 AM
Running Chrome on XP as local admin account allows for update. I thought it would bypass admin rights to install as a restricted user. Guess not.

Signed into Chrome this morning and got told I was using an unstable channel and that the update had failed - error 4 as below, what should I do now?

Version 22.0.1229.94 m
 Update failed (error: 4)An error occurred while checking for updates: Update check failed to start (error code 4: 0x80070005).

Re: Getting Error 4 while trying to update? k4rizma 11/7/12 8:18 AM
An administrator needs to update chrome.

Login as a domain or local admin and then run the update.  Unfortunately its an issue with windows XP even if auto update is not blocked.

Re: Getting Error 4 while trying to update? Erik Pasco 11/7/12 8:30 AM
As a domain admin at work, I'm going to have to treat Chrome like I do flash and java and push it out through a GPO
Re: Getting Error 4 while trying to update? k4rizma 11/7/12 9:26 AM
For windows 7 machines it seems after one of the revisions in V21 the auto-update works without admin privilages.  

If you're still using XP the GPO is the best way to go.  Use the google chrome release blog to check for updates:

http://googlechromereleases.blogspot.com/

I have it in my google rss reader  http://reader.google.com

Re: Getting Error 4 while trying to update? Ritzckrakr Cheesypuff 11/12/12 3:27 PM
hi Tomoya,

I'm getting Error 4 in the 'about chrome' window. i've only recently installed a update to flash. nothing new after that.
i'm not sure how to unblock auto-update, tho. The problem is my PC is loaded w/ a Korean version of windows [i'm in korea] and i don't know enough korean to change even that...if that is something that needs to be changed at all.

Thanks for your help!

Re: Getting Error 4 while trying to update? Dustin Peterson 1/14/13 4:05 PM
Hello, I am getting an error code 4 in Chrome Version 23.0.1271.97.  I am planning a deployment in our Enterprise with Chrome Enterprise Edition.  Basically, using active directory to push out the software to our windows hosts.  
I'd like to be able to push it out once and Chrome updates itself for users who are not a local admin or power user.  If I make the user a local Admin, the updater is able to update chrome.  Should it work without the user being a local admin or power user?
Re: Getting Error 4 while trying to update? Bill Henshaw - IODMC-C 1/15/13 9:11 AM
Same problem here, over 10k XP PCs asking for admin rights to update Chrome.  Google Chrome auto update just became odious.  
Re: Getting Error 4 while trying to update? Bill Henshaw - IODMC-C 1/17/13 4:53 AM
Seems that the PCs update ok even when mere users click cancel on the admin request prompt for this chrome update (from 23.0.1271.97 to 24.0.1312.52 m).  It actually does update with no actual admin rights granted, it just annoys and confuses the enterprise with the prompt.
Re: Getting Error 4 while trying to update? Dustin Peterson 1/17/13 10:15 AM
Thanks for the info.  I'll do some more testing with it.
Re: Getting Error 4 while trying to update? Dustin Peterson 1/18/13 2:06 PM
I do see that it updates behind the scenes.  That's good news.

So if I am understanding this thread correctly, I've got Google Chrome rolled to enterprise users in the domain that do not have admin rights.  The only way I'll be able to update Chrome is to install and update .msi?  Frustrating.
