It’s been a week now since Microsoft launched their new Windows 7 beta. Many people downloaded it, either because of curiosity or because they wanted to finally get rid of Vista. But as you know, this Windows 7 is Beta version. So it is for testing purposes, and there are many bugs that need to be fixed.
One of the bugs that was discovered by users of Windows 7 beta 64 bit version is that it can’t run Google’s famous internet browser - Google Chrome.
Google Chrome is one of the fastest browsers on the net available right now. And it’s market share between internet browsers is rising fast and constantly. I think it is because of Google’s aggressive promotion and marketing. I must admit that Google Chrome is amongst faster internet browsers I’ve tried. But I think it still can’t be compared to Mozilla Firefox 3. It just doesn’t have so big community of developers who make such a creative and useful plugins and extensions that are available only for Firefox. That’s why I use Firefox in the first place.
And for those of you who use Google Chrome on your PC and recently upgraded your operating system to Windows 7 beta 64 bit version have noticed that Google Chrome is not working on new version of Microsoft Windows 7. I have easy and simple fix for you that will enable you to run Google Chrome on Windows 7 64 bit version right away.
1. Right Click on Google Chrome Icon on your desktop
2. Add “–in-process-plugins” (without quotation marks) after chrome.exe in Target field.
Take a look at image below to see what I am talking about:
3. Click Apply (or OK) to save changes.
4. Now start Google Chrome and enjoy faster web browsing…
I hope I helped you to solve this annoying bug in Windows 7 and get that Chrome up and running.
