With the newer versions of Google Chrome, Google has removed the distinction between Google Chrome Business and Google Chrome standard.

Due to this change there is no way of knowing which version you have installed so we cannot automatically provide a Chrome package.

You can still create the update yourself. Here are the steps:
1. In Secunia Package System go to Configure View and uncheck the option Display only programs for which silent update packages can be created automatically
2. Go to Google Chrome and start the update creation wizard
3. On Step 2 add the correct installer under Files to include and the correct silent install parameters in the Jscrip under variable silentParams
4. Finish the wizard and publish the package

This is a custom script so we strongly recommend that you test on a couple of machines before you deploy the package to your entire environment.

Let me know if you have other questions,
