Launch Chrome gives error: Failed to assume control of Chrome

What fixed it:  P/Automate Add-in was installed but had been turned off.   No clue how.  But once we turned it back on it started working correctly.

 

This suddenly started happening on an otherwise-working PAD flow.  But only for my user.  It ran fine for me. 

Found a great troubleshooting guide:

Before we got into uninstalling/reinstalling, and registry checks... I decided to compare his/my settings on Chrome:

            Under Privacy/Sec,  Cookies and other sites  -- make sure we have the same 'allowed/trusted' sites.

            Check Add-Ins --  my intent was to turn it off, clear cache, reboot, turn it back on and retry.

 

We're still not sure how his add-in got turned off but lesson learned -- don't assume.  CHECK.
