“Error code x80040882” when installing Google Chrome

Asked By 20 points N/A Posted on -

Hi everyone.

While trying to install the Google Chrome web browser, I found an error code that says "x80040882".

This only occurred while trying to run the installer of Google Chrome browser.

This happens when doing either via double clicking the installer and by "Run as administrator" context menu.

I don’t understand what type of problem is this.

Does anybody have any idea on how to install the browser, and any way to resolve this issue?

Thanks for the response.

Hi Nicearellano,

It seems you have trouble installing Google chrome, from your question, its clear that the problem is either because of malware activity on your PC or you are having a corrupted installation exe file. 

First try downloading latest Google chrome from this website, make sure you have uninstalled the Google chrome if you have any older version or any other versions, this step is important . 

The URL for downloading Google chrome:- 

Click download latest version on the right and download it, Now click install it as usual, 

If it doesn't worked means you are having malware activity in your PC, please install any good antivirus, I personally recommend kaspersky internet security, 

Hope that solves your issue .

The only reason that will prevent you from installing a web browser is incompatibility. If you are installing Google Chrome, check that the version you are installing is compatible with your operating system. If you are using Windows XP or Windows Vista, you won’t be able to install and use the latest version.

The last version of the browser to support Windows XP and Windows Vista is Google Chrome 49.0.2623.112-m. To download the latest version, go to Google Chrome. This link allows you to download the standalone or offline installer for the Google Chrome browser. If you have Windows XP or Windows Vista, download Google Chrome 49.0.2623.112 from FileHippo.
