Testexecute tests run on Chrome browser

As chrome browser frequently updates so how we keep up the TestExecute runs against the latest version of Chrome browser. I mean if we have schedule Testexecute tests against the chrome brower and then chrome browser updates and the current version do not support then how we are going to handle it ?

 

Please update 

Thanks

You turn off the automatic updates and only update when there's a patch to support the newer version of Chrome.

It seem like there is no UI option to turn off automatic updates in Chrome browser ?

 

Thanks

Correct.  Chrome isn't very friendly that way, but if you do a search for "turn off auto update chrome", you'll find some answers.

It's been a while but I believe what we did was the third option and renamed the folder.

 

@AlexKaras do you have a preference here?

Third option (Remove or rename the <Program Files>\Google\Update folder.).

In addition, I also used to disable all Google Update Service(s) found in the Services control panel.

Download Chrome installer and run it.

 

Well, you may not delete Update folder but stop Google Update services and rename executable called something like CromeUpdate.exe from the Update folder to something else and rename it back when needed.

However, I remember the cases when somehow Chrome restored this executable and updated unexpectedly. So my preference after that is to stop all Google services and delete all Update folders that I can find on my box.
