Where to locate .exe/.msi

Postby LiquidAurum » Mon Oct 06, 2014 8:23 pm

I'm trying to install adblock plus with GPO, by installing the .msi/exe files. But I"ve only been able to find those for IE, and still searching for chrome and firefox versions.

There's no such thing. Chrome extensions are CRX files, while Firefox extensions are XPI files.

Chrome

Do you know if possibly there is a way to use those 2 links for group policy?

Thanks for this, do you happen to know the adblock plus extension ID and update url? I need those to setup .reg file for GPO.

Thanks

the ID should be included in the store url for the extension
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/deta ... fddb?hl=en
so ==>
Code: Select all
cfhdojbkjhnklbpkdaibdccddilifddb


for the update url: You find this info in the manifest.json of the extension

Code: Select all
"key": "MIGfMA0GCSqGSIb3DQEBAQUAA4GNADCBiQKBgQCxGWIIBRUVzQIXITqE6+js1FA24fsZC58G0fxcO1Duwfps+9gip5tedTziErKEpeAQVkgasdT4kk+b6Lw27yp3oysAj6zD9j+j4W+EMArTXqMIc6SMYD7Z8bPcwPb3tC1MUxMSpO6oOVpFE23UhKe91SYnrK92nHI2cmsor5elXQIDAQAB",
   "manifest_version": 2,
   "minimum_chrome_version": "28.0",
   "name": "__MSG_name__",
   "options_page": "options.html",
   "permissions": [ "tabs", "http://*/*", "https://*/*", "contextMenus", "webRequest", "webRequestBlocking", "webNavigation", "unlimitedStorage", "notifications" ],
   "update_url": "https://clients2.google.com/service/update2/crx",
   "version": "1.8.5",

Code: Select all
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Google\Chrome\ExtensionInstallForcelist]
1=cfhdojbkjhnklbpkdaibdccddilifddb;http://clients2.google.com/service/update2/crx?response=redirect&



This is what I put in notepad++ and saved as .reg file. But it keeps saying "you can only import binary registry files from within the registry editor"

Ok so that executed successfully, but it didn't actually work, it was a success as far as installing in .reg, but nothing came out of it, do I have to reinstall chrome? Please don't give me a link, I'd prefer an explanation rather then searching through he link if possible. thanks

Did you create the entry like here ? (I don't see the double quote and I see also something like ?response=redirect& )
http://dev.chromium.org/administrators/ ... lForcelist

Code: Select all
Software\Policies\Chromium\ExtensionInstallForcelist\1 = "cfhdojbkjhnklbpkdaibdccddilifddb;https://clients2.google.com/service/update2/crx"

Code: Select all
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Google\Chrome\ExtensionInstallForcelist]
1=cfhdojbkjhnklbpkdaibdccddilifddb;http://clients2.google.com/service/update2/crx?response=redirect&


this is exactly what it looks like, the 1=cfh is on a new line as seen above

from that link it should be:

Code: Select all
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Google\Chrome\ExtensionInstallForcelist]
1="cfhdojbkjhnklbpkdaibdccddilifddb;http://clients2.google.com/service/update2/crx"

I tried to copy/paste exactly what you said and I see in my registry that the entry is there but it says no value set. I don't know if that is normal or not.
