I just got a Chromecast device to push videostreaming from my computer to my TV. Evidently the .exe program is getting blocked by the Firewall. I simply want GoogleUpdate.exe to work to enable the Chromcast system to complete installation and start working.
Thank you for informing this issue. I'm afraid that Microsoft Firewall is a software from Microsoft and our support team does not have enough knowledge to help you troubleshoot. According to you description, here's a Google Forum's discussion thread which might solve your problem. Please give it a shot: how do I whitelist googleupdate.exe from firewall?
