Problem: Message to download the plugin appears when I try to make a call. Downloading throws error 1605. Plugin was previously installed.

Solution: Another thread (dated January, 2013) advises to delete a port file and run googletalkplugin.exe to recreate it. This works until ---

New problem: I shut down the browser (Chrome) and restart it. Same message appears. When I check, the port file has been deleted. In short, now I must recreate the port file each time I start the browser.

Additional info: I also tried to uninstall the plugin but the system cannot find the msi file to do so.

Google Products has several threads that state the problem has been fixed, but they are dated the middle of last year. It appears to have returned. However, today (2/28/13) is the first time I have encountered it. I know it was working yesterday.

Yes, I tried to uninstall, but got the message that the msi file could not be found. I then searched and found one that looked good in another directory. I redirected the uninstaller to that file and it worked. I then re-downloaded the plugin from Google and it works fine now.

Don't know how the msi file got lost, but perhaps something else I did (clean the registry, etc.) messed it up. All's well that ends well, I guess.
