chromeframe attempted re-install fails with uninformative "Error 1" and link to non-existent help page

Reported by, Sep 30 2009

Issue description

Chrome Version       : (Official Build 26751) in IE6
URLs (if applicable) : n/a
Other browsers tested: n/a

Installed Chrome frame last week. Wasn't really working properly, as noted
in  issue #22790 .  Decided to see if I could update. Update button was
greyed out in IE6 addon management and saw no option to delete. Decided to
attempt reinstall.
Installer went through entire 17 MiB download of Chrome, then halted with
an "error 1"

Attempted it twice.
Uninstalling from Add/Remove Programs worked (not terribly familiar with Windows so
that didn't immediately occur to me).

Once this was done, the reinstall proceeded normally.
Still, could stand to be a bit more clear that that was the problem.

With CF installed in IE6, I did an reinstall from CF official website(same
version, it does have problem when reinstalling.

While I didn't meet an "error 1", instead a "unspecified error", see screen-shot for

When reinstalling a CF build against on the same existed build, the expected behavior
should be doing an overinstall or prompting user with some meaningful message.

Assigning it to Robert, I think he has already fixed this.

Fixing a bulk edit. Looks like the search query was not correct.
