Google chrome standalone offline installer

Chrome can be difficult to install on a machine which is not connected to the internet. You may ask why you would want a web browser installed a machine which cannot browse the web, but it is often required for browsing internal URLs, or testing a web server internally, for example.

The normal installer downloads a small installer, which then downloads the actual browser. This also fails through a proxy server. Luckily you can download the standalone installer using this link:

Copy software to Virtual machines (Hyper-V or Vmware) using IsoCreator

This is by far the quickest and easiest way to copy software onto a VM if you have access to the host or console, but no network connectivity, and the machine does not have access to the internet.

IsoCreator: http://sourceforge.net/projects/iso-creator-cs/

This excellent utility is small, fast and requires no reboot. Perfect for quickly creating an ISO with some software of files in a format accessible from your VMs.
