On Windows, Chrome might be installed in your AppData folder: "C:\Users\\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application"
Before you execute the command, make sure all of your Chrome window is closed and not otherwise running. Or, the command line param would not be effective. "chrome.exe --allow-file-access-from-files"
