Edge and Chrome downgrade to old version

Hello, I want to download an .msi file from a link for Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge installed on the endpoint, downgrade their versions and prevent them from updating. Is there a procedure regarding this issue?

Can you help ?

hi @kadircihanyolcu

Please do find the below script and let us know if it works out for your requirement


Thank you for your answer, but my goal is not to disable the plug-ins, but to downgrade Chrome and Microsoft Edge with the msi or exe file in the url.

hi @kadircihanyolcu

I will forward your request to the concern team to look into it and get back to you

thank you.

Hi @kadircihanyolcu ,

Can you please try our existing scripts to downgrade Chrome and Edge by giving the old version msi download link in the script and adding the command in the script
msiexec /i %s /quiet ALLOWDOWNGRADE=1

obj = Popen(‘msiexec /i %s /quiet ALLOWDOWNGRADE=1’%(DownTo), shell = True, stdout = PIPE, stderr = PIPE)

with modify the command as described above

Please let us know if you face any issue.

Kind Regards,

Thank you very much for the help. It was successful on most remote sites, but on some it returned error code 1620 and on others it gave the following output. How can I solve these problems?

Trials have only been made for Microsoft Edge, there are no trials for Google Chrome yet.

It also works smoothly for Google Chrome. Can we prevent the information saved in Chrome from being lost?

Hi @kadircihanyolcu ,

We have shared your error output with our script developer to get more information.

Kind Regards,

Hi @kadircihanyolcu ,

Please check our script developer comment
"We can’t do much to prevent the information saved in Chrome from being lost. Google themselves mentioned in this link that “Downgrading Chrome automatically deletes all user profiles and cache data, so only do it if absolutely necessary” - Downgrade your Chrome version (Windows) - Chrome Enterprise and Education Help

Also Please tell the customer to try the script again on the system and check that whether he is still getting the [Errno 10054] issue. "
