Hey guys,
I tried manually installing the latest Chromium and it hosed my
browser. Something went wrong with the install so I decided to mess
around with Updater. I managed to get it working again for now. This
is a temporary unofficial fix until Martin gets a chance. He should
add a donate button, Updater is good software.

You should be able to download it from this link:

I have only tested the snapshot version and my Chromium now works. I
tried changing the urls for the continuous version but it might not
work at all. No warranties of any kind.

Matt, thanks for the work on this, but could you add the WebKit
channel as the menu choice and URL for the now-defunct continuous
builds? It seems that the webkit is slightly more current than the
other builds.

http://build.chromium.org/f/chromium/snapshots/Win_Webkit_Latest/

Just a thought!

THANKS,
Dale

Ok, you can try this:
https://sites.google.com/site/chromiumupdaterfix/files/chromeupdwebkit.zip?attredirects=0&d=1

The webkit snapshot is still under "snapshot". I don't know if it will
work or if it will ruin your install since Webkit uses different
revisions. If it doesn't work you can also try opening regedit going
to hkey_current_user\software\chromium updater and setting downloaded
version and installed version to 0?

If you set URL and Latest Build File to
http://commondatastorage.googleapis.com/chromium-browser-snapshots/Win/
and
LAST_CHANGE
the updates from the snapshot channel should work again.

(However there's a small bug so that one cannot always save the new
settings, so I might make a new updater version available that fixes
this.)
