Google Update Installation Failed with Error 0x8004071c

Tags: , , ,

Audit mode detected if the error message below is shown upon installing the Google Chrome Installer:

It appears your computer is running in 'Audit Mode.' To resolve this issue, you'll need to edit your Windows registry.
Editing the Windows registry is an advanced process, so you might want to contact your system administrator for help.
  1. Go to Start > Run.
  2. In the window that appears, enter regedit and click OK.
  3. Find the following registry key:

    ◦ For Windows 7: The value of ImageState in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup\State
    ◦ For Vista: The value of ImageState in HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup\State
    ◦ For XP: The value of AuditInProgress in HKLM\System\Setup

  4. Right-click the registry key and select Modify.
  5. Delete the value and click OK.

Hey, I had this problem and solved it by deleting the value. I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate in a Dell Vostro 1510.

I was stupid enough to delete the value without saving it in Notepad or something like that, and now I can't restore it to its default value.

Can anyone please tell me what is the default value for "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup\State" in Windows 7?

Thanx a lot!

I just updated my post, I have placed there a registry patch so that you won't have to open the regedit by yourself... You just have to run this patch then run again the ChromeSetup_17x_xx.exe.
