If chrlauncher.exe just acts as a shortcut to chromium, what do i do to make it first install an update to chromium upon running the executable? Mind this dumb question if it is one, but I'm a noob.

Set ChromiumCheckPeriod=-1 to force Chromium update in your chrlauncher.ini file.

Delete the "bin" folder
(if ChromiumDirectory=.\bin , in your chrlauncher.ini file)

Which OS version (windows 10, 8, 7) ?

Windows 10. And yeah, ChromiumDirectory=.\bin is there. Should I still delete the bin folder?

@P4risAndStuff : sorry for delay. Yes you can remove it. This is only the folder for Chromium binary files. There are no addon, no user data.

Deleted it and opened chrlauncher.exe - it actually did the "update" but it basically just re-installed Chromium 64.0.3259.0 (which I've been using these past few days) instead of updating to a newer version like 64.0.3265.0. Is that version not ready to be supported with chrlauncher yet or something? It isn't really even a big deal anyways, 3259 is super close to 3265. Just wondering what's going on here.

It depends of the channel.
(check ChromiumType=*** in your chrlauncher.ini file)

For example:

  • dev-official is updated each hour by The Chromium Authors buildbot (today, it is 64.0.3266.0 / 515835)
  • dev-codecs-sync is updated by nik - a developer - (today, it is still 64.0.3259.0 / 514062)
