Issue 385171: Chrome Canary reported "Egads! Installation failed. Error code: 0xa0430721."

Reported by, Jun 16 2014 Project Member

Issue description

My Win7 Canary installation wouldn't upgrade today, so I uninstalled it.
(I didn't record the failure code, sorry)

I downloaded a new setup binary and attempted to re-install.
That failed with "Egads! Installation failed. Error code: 0xa0430721."

I can't find that resource string in codesearch, or other useful info.
It was an intermittent issue, but hope we could link to more info.
A Google search for that string didn't bring up any great Chrome info.

The error is coming from Omaha:


It indicates that somehow Omaha was uninstalling at the time an install was called. Therefore, the install error out since it could not acquire the necessary locks.

D'oh it might even be more obvious than I thought... I attempted to re-install Chrome Canary very soon after un-installing it (maybe 30s). After running uninstall, "Google Chrome Canary" was still in the uninstall programs list until I clicked the refresh there. Perhaps I just didn't wait long enough, to then attempt re-installation.

This is most likely the result of a race condition between Google Update uninstalling itself when the Chrome Canary was uninstalled, and the install of the new Chrome Canary.
