Hi @Mathg76,

o deploy Google Chrome Enterprise without Google Apps using MECM, you can use the following command-line argument:

 

/nogoogleapps

 

 

For example, to deploy Google Chrome Enterprise without Google Apps using MECM, you would create a new deployment package and specify the following command line:

 

msiexec /i "GoogleChromeEnterprise.msi" /nogoogleapps

 

 

References:

Please note that the /nogoogleapps command-line argument is only available in Google Chrome Enterprise version 99 and later. If you are using an older version of Google Chrome Enterprise, you will need to use the following workaround to remove Google Apps after Google Chrome Enterprise has been installed:

  1. Stop the Chrome process:

 

Get-Process Chrome -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue | Stop-Process​

 

  1. Remove the Google Apps directory:

       

 

Remove-Item -Path "C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application<Chrome version>\chrome.exe" -Recurse

 

Replace <Chrome version> with the version of Google Chrome Enterprise that you are using.

Hi @Mathg76,

This is because the command-line argument is only available in Google Chrome Enterprise version 99 and later. If you are using an older version of Google Chrome Enterprise, you will need to use the following workaround to remove Google Apps after Google Chrome Enterprise has been installed:

  1. Stop the Chrome process:

 

Get-Process Chrome -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue | Stop-Process​

 

  • Remove the Google Apps directory:

 

Remove-Item -Path "C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application&lt;Chrome version>\chrome.exe" -Recurse

 

Replace <Chrome version> with the version of Google Chrome Enterprise that you are using.


If you are using Google Chrome Enterprise version 99 or later, and the /nogoogleapps command-line argument is still not working, you can try the following:

  1. Make sure that you are using the correct command-line argument. The command-line argument is /nogoogleapps, not /nogoogleapps.
  2. Make sure that you are using the correct version of the Google Chrome Enterprise MSI file. The MSI file for Google Chrome Enterprise version 99 or later can be downloaded from the Google Chrome Enterprise website.
  3. Make sure that you are installing Google Chrome Enterprise using a privileged user account.
  4. Make sure that there are no other programs running that could be interfering with the installation.

I noticed this in our environment and investigation led me to this link. It's a long read but the 'fix' should be in Chrome 118.
https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=1476987

I don't know if it will pull the shortcuts out of peoples' start menus though.
