Google Chrome by default will install into a user profile which is problematic for mass deployment in a layer. However Google does provide an “offline” installer that installs Chrome into “Program Files” and this installer should be used with Unidesk if installing into a layer.
The basic installation steps are straight forward:
1.Create a Google Chrome application layer
a.Install Chrome using the offline installer or msi
b.Note on extensions
c.Disable Google Updates (optional)
2.Configure Chrome AD GPO’s
3.Apply the layer to desired desktops

Unidesk recommends including the OS Type and OS bit level in the name, for Example Google Chrome 31 Win7x32. For versions remember that when choosing a layer you can see the version name but not the version description. Use naming that will allow you to differentiate versions appropriately. For example “1.0 12-12-2013”.
If you are using a GPO to disable updates just add a version to your layer and open Chrome it will automatically update.If you have used the registry setting to disable updates modify the registry setting to a number other than 0 and open chrome, it will update then you can set the registry entry back to 0.Note: If this doesn’t work for you let me know I was not able to test this in the lab.
