It works really well. Have tried different Chromium Updater. Finally settled on this. I have few questions. 1. How do I change 32 or 64 bit during installation. It seems I can't change it during installation. Only after installation I can change 32 or 64. But by that time if I am using 64 bit OS, Chromium is already stored in C:Programfiles(x86) folder. 2. If I install directly on C:Programfiles, it still not updating or checking for chromium when I try to check latest release. So right now I am using 32bit Chromium on 64 bit OS. If there is a way to overcome this please let me know. Do I need to change updater to look for 64 bit chromium and to feed the corresponding link? Thanks Nellai
I've used this piece of software in the past without any troubles at all, but coming back to it today, I'm encountering a bit of a problem. Whenever I try to install or check for updates, I'm told that the "Connection could not be established." Otherwise, if going on past experience and the assumption that this is just little quick-fix problem, this program does its job :) !
Worked until one update failed to finish properly, Now I keep getting "Update package damaged" error no matter what I try. Also, even if it fails to update it deletes part of my existing Chromium installation. Very annoying.
Update 12/31/2013: I've used this for over 6 months now, and I'm completely satisfied! There's only two suggestions I have; 1) Allow multiple releases to be installed at the same time, mainly either snapshot or continuous builds alongside 64-bit builds. This would be handy for testing purposes as it'd save me the time of having to choose one or the other and manually update the second install. 2) Use absolute paths for running instances. Since Chromium is locked in its directory now, just detecting running Chromium instances would be beneficial for those who run Google Chrome at the same time and have to close Chrome to update Chromium.
