I have now made a valid JSON file, I downloaded the Enterprise MSI file.

Know the the question, where do i put the "master_preferences" or how do i execute the msi file to use the file? I have tried to google it but with no luck.

According to Google you should place it next to the chrome executable (chrome.exe), on a Windows system the filepath would be C:\Program Files\Google\Chrome\Application\master_preferences

  • @TorbjörnDahlgren Either you need to restart the computer, or fully restart Chrome. It could also be the JSON (though you said it was valid so I doubt that), doublecheck anyway. It might also be that the master_preferences file is only used when Google Chrome is started for the first time, used as a way for businesses to deploy chrome on many computers. If that's the case this is probably not what you want to do. May I ask what you're trying to achieve?
