Edge Stable MSI wrong architecture in installer

Occasional Contributor



Today i planed to deploy Enge Stable 79.0.301 in my environment but when i try adding edge do GPO i found out that both MSI package show that they are in x86 version, when one installer (x64) should show that is x64 version.


Because of this deployment its basically pointless because GPO wont be able install right package based on platform architecture. 

This may even cause installation in wrong directory o even make installation impossible because of conflict with x64 version.


I was able to repair this using orca and changing platform in "Summary information" - in both version x86 and x64 platform is set to "intel" when on x64 should be x64 like in image below

@Henno_Keers i suspected this when i looking other post and one mentioned this.

@adamsmith34 i miss your post when i looked if someone have that same issue.




@_bolek_ I linked to my post to confirm and support your issue.


hello, how exatcly did you repair?

What exact version of Orca?
I'm trying to do it but when I save the .MSI from Orca (5.0, latest I found) (even, without making any change) I get an error from group policy: "cannot extract informations about deployment of the packages: run validations"

Sorry for bad english and bad translation of error message.


@unlikely i used super orca, its enhanced version of orca.
