Stable 30...125 XP failure

  • Stable 30.0.1835.125 does not work with my XP pc. Browser opens with not enough memory message.
    Re-installed .88. Same problem, as before, with stable 29.

  • How much RAM do you have? It runs - but struggles - on my old XP SP3 system with 1 GB shared RAM (as in, onboard video uses some of it).

  • Arent't you using Bitdefender? There were some problems reported in these forums.

  • 2 GB here. Opera runs fast on this system. The problem with .125 is not with memory, thats just the message that appears. It was the same message that appeared when Opera 29 installation failed.
    Right now, with Opera 30.0.1835.88 running, my memory usage is about 27 percent.

  • Tried again...same 'out of memory' message. Tried the new Beta, same problem.

  • same experience i had, that's why i'm still using opera 28

  • XP problems resolved. There was a conflict between the newer versions of Opera (30.0.1835.125 and the Betas) and my firewall, Online Armor. Problem was discovered with an attempt to load the latest Beta. Result was same as before, 'Out of Memory' error. This time I disabled the firewall and tried again...success! There's was nothing in the firewall configuration to indicated a conflict. Everything looked normal. Re-enable the firewall and tried opening Opera Beta again..same problem, so I added the Beta file to 'Exclusions' and the browser opened properly. With the browser left open I removed the Beta file from the exclusions, closed the browser and re-opened. Everything runs fine now.
    I repeated the process with Opera stable and Opera 30.0.1835.88 updated properly to 30.0.1835.125.

    We'll see if the conflict continues with the next update. At least there's a work around if needed.
