I've noticed that it's pretty hard to find a download for the latest version of Google Chrome for Windows XP & Windows Vista. Even though I don't usually use Chrome, it's not uncommon for me to have to re-install Windows for someone who does. And sometimes, it just so happens that I need to re-install Windows XP or Vista for someone who uses it as their primary browser. I've had to do this enough times to where I decided that enough was enough, and that I was going to spend the majority of an afternoon looking for an untouched installer for Chrome v49.0.2623.112 (the very last version to support Windows XP and Vista). After quite a bit of searching, I managed to hunt down untouched 32-bit and 64-bit installers (I verified their hashes, so they're the real deal).
I also figured out how to install Chrome for all users with them via command line. So, to install for only the current user (to AppData) you'll want to just run the appropriate EXE for your system. If you'd like to do a system install (to Program Files) you'll want to run its batch file counterpart.
Unfortunately, I have not yet been able to find the Enterprise (MSI) installers, but I'll keep looking, and I'll update here if/when I do. Edit 10-7-2017: I have finally found the Enterprise installers. A download link has been added for them. I also updated the download for the standard EXE installers to include proper MD5 and SHA1 files.
Good news everyone. I have finally found the Enterprise installers! A download link has been added to my first post. In addition, I have also updated the download for the standard EXE installers to include usable MD5 and SHA1 files.
soapmusic27: I have made us a Discord channel: discord.gg/9jtudv Also created a thread about it. I never knew what the Win10 2004 searchbar issue was until just now. For some reason, I am running 2004 with classic theme and the searchbar is unaffected

Splitwirez: Apparently the Windows XP source code has leaked. Keep your distance, folks.

ihatemetro: Splitwirez It was? Which Service Pack? To all people, don't use it for making Windows more Classic. Edit: It's SP1 I can tell, and any Windows NT OS older than XP was also leaked. Edit 2: Bits of Windows 10 source code have also been leaked.

Hayafumi: Well i'm even more scared when 7's will get spilled out on the internet.
Sept 25, 2020 5:38:56 GMT -8
ihatemetro: Hayafumi Oh no, not 7 or Vista. At least people can find a way to get Windows 10 drivers on 7 and still supply security updates, but still it's going to be illegal.
Sept 25, 2020 5:41:12 GMT -8
Hayafumi: Ah, well I will probably switch to 10 and setup Classic Theme or go to Linux pretty soon.
Sept 25, 2020 5:45:12 GMT -8
ihatemetro: Hayafumi That's not even all of it, Windows CE 3-7, Server 2003, and MS-DOS 3.30 and 6, as well as original Xbox source code have been leaked as well. Bits of Xbox one source code have also been leaked.

Hayafumi: Oh lord, this is the gigaleak like Nintendo but not really.
Sept 25, 2020 6:25:31 GMT -8
ihatemetro: Hayafumi I also saw a tiny bit of Windows 7 source code once too, but it's a tiny bit and not that important, from 2010. Can't tell if it's real or not.

Hayafumi: There goes another partition on my drive, gonna install either LTSC or LTSB on it.
Sept 25, 2020 13:58:39 GMT -8
ihatemetro: Hayafumi LTSB 2016 is recommended, it supports Classic Theme and has longer support than LTSB 2015.

Hayafumi: Is kinda of a struggle for me to make Pre-1803 because I can't get everything to start up, but i'll try again.
Sept 25, 2020 15:17:48 GMT -8
Hayafumi: Once again, i'm really new on Classic Theme +8
Sept 25, 2020 15:18:04 GMT -8
Hayafumi: Also, is a struggle finding LTSB 2016.
Sept 25, 2020 19:55:42 GMT -8
Hayafumi: I'm just going with 8.1.
