This error code “0x8004070c” is one unusual error which you may encounter when installing the Google Chrome web browser using their web installer. If you downloaded an installer for Google Chrome and you receive this error code upon installation, it means you downloaded the web installer. Try shifting to the offline installer.

To download the offline or standalone installer, go to Google Chrome Offline Installer download page then download the installer. Next, download the free version of Revo Uninstaller and install it. Once installed, start Revo Uninstaller then select Google Chrome among the applications and click “Uninstall”. Follow the normal uninstall process.

When uninstall is complete, click “Scan” to scan your computer for any leftover files and delete everything it finds. This removes everything the program created on your computer. When it is finished, exit Revo Uninstaller then install the new version you downloaded.
