SP with 2 Chrome User Profiles

Post by Phils » Wed Feb 27, 2013 1:39 pm

I have 2 Chrome user profiles - one personal and one for work. The SP icon appears in one profile but I cannot get the caption button or extension to appear in the other. I have installed and uninstalled Chrome as a supported browser but it hasn't helped.

Is there a procedure I need to follow that I am not aware of?

Unfortunately Sticky Password doesn´t support multiple profiles in Chrome at this time. We will add this feature probably in the future.

However there is an unofficial workaround which could help but you have to be tech skilled. If you would like to try it, let me know. However it´s really unofficial and it hasn´t been tested properly.

Thank you for understanding.

Best regards,

I'm reasonably tech-savvy.
I'm willing to give it a try.

1) First you have to get the unpacked extension
a) either copy the SPAUTOFILL.CRX to SPAUTOFILL.ZIP and extract the content of the ZIP file to some folder
b) or locate the installed extension in the default Chrome user profile (C:\Users\<UserName>\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Extensions\offlaklpbgccmeobfnimdjapgolbfhad\<VersionNumber>\) and copy the content to some folder
2) Enable the Developer mode in Chrome by checking the "Developer mode" checkbox on the Extensions page
3) Install the extension by clicking the "Load unpacked extension..." button and locating the folder where you have placed the extension in step 1)
