Google Chrome does not work after the profile on my PC changed by joining my PC to a domain.

It does not show any message or error. Just nothing run.

Any idea.

Presumably you installed it via ClickOnce. Install it through ClickOnce again.

Chrome is typically installed via ClickOnce, which installs for the current user.

It is also possible you have a whole new account. When you join a domain and sign on with domain creds, Windows won't load the local account.

Either way, you'll have to reinstall Chrome.

Google Chrome normal installer installs it only for local user. When you joined in a domain Windows created a new folder for you profile threating you as a new user (you can join to local machine profile through respective option on logon screen to enter in your old account and see that Chrome is functioning).

Two solutions:

  • Install Google Chrome again for the new user - this solution will install Chrome only for this user profile
  • Install a portable version of Google Chrome (e.g. install LiberKey and then install Google Chrome portable app on it or install a portable version directly from PortableApps) - this solution will install Chrome for all user profiles if you allow access of other users to its folder and shortcut, but with the same Chrome profile
