Request for a Portable Version for Opera Desktop Web Browser!

  • Hello Folks!

    Iam eager to make a transition to the "Portable" version of Opera, but couldn't find any reference on your Official Homepage about the same.

    Please help me fetch a reliable Web Link to retrieve the Latest "Portable Version" of Opera Web Browser for my Win8 Desktop PC.

    Help in this regard will be sincerely appreciated.

    Last query---Does the Main installer offer an option to install Opera as a "Portable" version? I perceive a .zip package containing an .exe file as the only genuine Portable version.

    Yours Inputs & suggestions please.....

    Thank you.

  • Can't one just install on a stick choosing it custom "Standalone/USB"?

  • Does the Main installer offer an option to install Opera as a "Portable" version?

    Yes.

  • Not really can...........

    I just tried on my Window 8.1 the standalone installed option is dimmed like this

    I remember in previous I use workaround to copy the Opera installer file on a thumb drive & bring the thumb drive to other machine. Install it as standalone ( no matter install on the desktop system or on the thumb drive )

    Then, after installed, grab the whole Operas directory to the thumb drive & bring home & paste it to the location you originally want to use standalone Opera.

    Thank you very much.
    Edmond.

  • Hello all!

    But what about the Portable versions of Opera Web Browser getting offered through the prominent Software download sites such as---Softpedia, Download.com & alike?

    Should one exercise a caution before giving a 'Go Ahead' to these?

  • & Friends, how credible is this Hyperlink:-

    http://www.opera-usb.com/download.htm

    & lastly, Why is there a difference of Version than to the one which goes currently valid for the Main Installer?

    Didn't Opera upgrade the USB variant driven Portable version to Latest release...to something like---36.0.X.?

  • I suspect that the standalone install option is unavailable because you have the install path set to that of an existing installation.
    Try changing the install path and see if it comes back.

  • I would never do this ---> But what about the Portable versions of Opera Web Browser getting offered through the prominent Software download sites such as---Softpedia, Download.com & alike?

    When, Op era installer from official site also could make USB installation.

    Thank you very much.

    It's because you have a previous installation. Just change the install path.

    How could they upgrade something that doesn't exist.
