Most browsers today are faster, safer and more powerful than their first iterations. These browsers offer a simplified way to download and install extensions by simply browsing to the corresponding online store. Chromium is no exception to this rule. The browser allows a user to go to the Webstore and install any application by clicking the’Install’ button . In a few seconds, the download starts and the user only has to authorize the plugin for installation.
However, in some cases, Chrome Web Store may express its inability to install the application or extension by flashing an error message on your computer screen Windows 8 :

You can disable the application that is not supported by Chrome Error. To do this, create a new shortcut for Chrome on the desktop.
Right click, select’Properties’, click the’Compatibility’ tab under’Compatibility Mode’, select’Run this program in compatibility mode for Windows 7‘ and click’OK’ to apply the changes.
Then run Chrome with the newly created shortcut, browse to the web store and install this extension. Now delete the shortcut you just created and in the’Shortcut Properties’ dialog box under the’Compatibility’ tab, make sure that this program is not selected in compatibility mode.
I hope it works for you.
