T2embed.dll is a Windows dll in system32 . Not sure if it exists in Windows 2000.

Yeah there is still some trouble even with the t2embed.dll. Sometimes it works, most of the time it doesn't. Not sure what the trouble is yet though, I am going to try removing the XP t2embed requirements and see if it works that way.

That's the same fix we are using but Blackwing seems to have made an easier method to apply it quickly.
Here's the version on his website ( in japanese ).
Here's a translation by some guys I found.

Not tested yet but it seems to be using the same workaround with dlls wrapper files and a modified IE User agent to download the last chrome build.

This is my Web site :)
But there is one problem.

Javascript confirm() is no return to Chrome. For example google gears confirm.

This problem since chrome 0.4.154.17.
and this function completely worked till version 0.3.154.9.

You can't.Google Chrome uses its own Java Script engine and JS is enabled by default.When you encounter problems install flash player.That often solves problems with playback.

Thanks to Navjot Singh for working out the following installation method:
Google Chrome on Windows 2000/2k? Works with my method
Posted by Navjot Singh On September 8th, 2008

Link Updated as of October 09, 2010.

Yes, I have finally managed to decode the japanese language finally. And not only managed to decode it, but I will provide you with an easier way and less files to work with. And will also tell you on how to sort a common error with that type of Installation on Windows 2000.

For those who are wondering, where this japanese language concept came in here’s the link. Actually Google Chrome was made only for Windows XP and Vista. Installer won’t even run on Windows 2000. But a japanese guy founded a method to make it work on Windows 2000 too. But since the page was in japanese and even google translator provided not much help, not much people could make it work on Windows 2000. I tried not only learning his method but also came up with a simpler method too.

So here is my method to make Chrome work on Windows 2000.

1. Make sure you have the following patch in 2000 Installed: Update Rollup 1 for Windows 2000 SP4 (KB891861 and KB935839)
2. If you want to use Chrome v3.0, also apply this patch – KB915958v2
3. Download the Crm2k36a (2763) file from here.
4. Run the CHROME2K.exe file and apply settings accordingly.
5. Download Chrome using the button in CHROME2K.exe after applying the compatible registry and user agent. Do set locale for Chrome before downloading.
6. And voila, Chrome now runs in Windows 2000.
7. To uninstall Chrome run the offical uninstaller from Add Remove Programs and then run CHROME2K.exe file, check Display for uninstall and then select Clean up setting registry and Uninstall wrapper registry.

Please report if the above method does not work. Or a fix still needed for above method. Hope my method works for everybody.
