Why Do I get a "Google Update installation failed..." message when I try to install Google Gears? jecm88 3/28/09 7:07 PM
I started using the offline feature of Gmail shortly after it was introduced. I used Gears Firefox 3.0.x on Windows Vista Business x32. For several weeks, I was able to synchronize my e-mail just fine, but recently I noticed it wasn't synching when I logged into Gmail. I checked the browser add-ons and Gears wasn't there any more. Here's what happens:

I go to the Gears website, gears.google.com, and download the installer. When I run it (and give it the ok from my firewall, COMODO Firewall Pro), I get this error message: "Google Update installation failed with error 0x8004070d." Does anybody know why this is happening? Does it have anything to do with Google Chrome (installed on machine)?
