Chrome version incorrect in Programs and Features
0
Hello,

At my company we use the downloaded Chrome MSI along with Microsoft's SCCM to distribute Chrome to the computers.  On occasion we see two different versions of the software installed when we query the machine's WMI data.  Because of the bad version, then the software that reports on vulnerabilities thinks that Chrome is outdated and flags numerous issues.

As an example, last week we released v91.0.4472.101 to all machines in the same manner.  On roughly 10% of the machines, if you look in the programs and features window, it shows up that Chrome v68.94.101 shows up.  Interestingly enough, if you open the MSI file up to look at the details (I'm using Installshield) you can see that both versions are listed.

In this case the "Product Version" field shows 68.94.101 and the "Summary Information Steam Comments" shows "91.0.4472.101 Copyright 2021 Google LLC"

Has anyone else seen this problem and/or know of a way to have the end computer consistently get the correct version number in programs and features?

Thanks,
Details

Hi Eric,
 
Thanks for reaching out to the Chrome Enterprise Help Community!

Please note that there's only one version of Chrome on a computer at any given time. As per my understanding, the version (v. 68.94.101) you're referring to could be MSI installer ProductVersion, it is expected to differ from the Chrome version (v. 91.0.4472.101.)

As an administrator, you can use the Google Admin console to see which versions of Chrome Browser is running on devices in your organization. Please follow the steps suggested in this article to see the version details.

Let me know if you have further questions.

Best,
Brad
