Here at college, I am behind a proxy.

To install chrome, I download ChromeSetup.exe file and run it. Now it needs to connect to the internet in order to download the actual software. But I am behind a proxy. The ChromeSetup.exe file that I just executed does not detect/ask the proxy and tries to connect to the internet and fails.

I can't find a fix. Any ideas what might be done??

[This problem is not about setting the proxy when the browser is installed. Its about downloading and installing the browser.]


You should be able to download the Offline installer from here. For some reason it seems that Google don't expose the ?standalone=1 version of the download link on their own pages.

EDIT: Alternatively you could try Softpedia. It has a mirror link for each of the different versions you might want.

  • you are right, i could not find the standalone installer, and the link below has some issue, so i do not have the chrome browser still :(

  • I was just able to download the installer using that link, perhaps its an issue with your proxy?

A standalone setup is available at this location. This is the full version, not an installer that will download the rest.

  • are you sure this is a working link? I am getting "Connection timed out!"

  • Worked fine for me when I posted my message. The EXE is still on my HD.
