note: since Bug 301073 removed chrome support and it would have taken additional effort to support this in Vista this was included in the fixes for 2.0.0.2
To verify install 2.0.0.1, check for the existence of HKLM Software\Classes\chrome, install 2.0.0.2, and verify that HKLM Software\Classes\chrome has been removed.
