How To Run Google Chrome On Windows 7 64 Bit

by Chrome Blog on January 7, 2009

As per the recent trends and statistics going around on the internet, Google Chrome after it came out of Beta Version gained in on its Browser Market Share significantly. Although it is difficult to accurately calculate its Market Share it is somewhere in the region of 1.10% – 1.25%, enough to get it past the much older Opera Browser.

Though the rise of market share has been significant for Chrome, mainly due to its hype generated, the aggressive marketing and advertising by Google and the most important factor being that Chrome is a Google Product, its increase has been somewhat hampered by lack of any Mac Version or a Linux version for the browser, apart from extensions and plugins support so far.

I have been getting loads of emails about queries for the Mac and Linux versions of Chrome which actually undermines the fact that once these versions are released a lot of new users would come to Chrome. I was also hearing about various compatibility issues with respect to Google Chrome running on the latest operating system from Microsoft – the Windows 7 64 Bit versions. Today i came across a nice post from BlogsDNA who posted the solution for making Google Chrome work on Windows 7 64 Bit. I am pointing out the steps below to make it work :

Make Google Chrome Work on Windows7 64 Bit

  • Right Click on the Google Chrome Shortcut Icon
  • Click on Properties and Select the Shortcut Tab From the Properties Window
  • In the Target Field put –in-process-plugins right after chrome.exe
Google Chrome For Windows 7
  • Click On Apply to save the changes and Then Click on OK to close the window
  • Now Open Google Chrome It would work on your Windows 7 64 Bit.

If there are any queries then that you may have you can let us know by leaving a comment here.

good day.
I have a problem. on Windows 7 I can not log on youtube.com. not in Google Chrome, but not in Internet explorer. Wondering if I should miss a plugin or something? it still has an error “Error 324 (net:: ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE): Server closed connection without sending any data.”

I’ve downloaded Google Chrome and did everything accordingly yet it still won’t work. I’ve tried trouble shooting it and everytime I click it, the permission screen appears, I accept, and then nothing happens afterthat point.

Your instructions worked like a charm! Keeping it simple like you did was exactly the outcome…it was simple.

I too was having issues with Chrome on my 64 bit Sony Vaio Laptop/Windows 7 like most of us above. It was slow lagging for up to 4-5 min and pull up or crash, received different errors depending on the site I was trying to access.

I did however decide to uninstal Chrome all together and start over:

-Uninstall Chrome (recommended)
-Reinstall Chrome (clearly if you uninstalled it as I suggested)
-I did change the Extensions to “Developer Mode” (when this mode available I always utilize….helps out)
-Select “Update extensions now”.
-Close Google Chrome (and any/all other windows opened…close them)

-Right Click on the Google Chrome shortcut created or from you Start Menu
-Select “Properties”
-Follow Josie’s instructions EXACTLY which are listed above
-Then reopen Chrome

***NOTE: It did take a minute or two for Chrome to find and use plugins before I was able to finally surf smoothly and quickly. Still a little slower that I’m used to with other browsers however tolerable. Just be patient and give it a minute. If it still doesn’t work simply close Chrome and reopen it one last time and that should do the trick!
