Opera 49.0.2725.64 continuously offer me to update

  • 0_1514647163765_opera_49_error_check_updates.png
    New menu item "Get the latest security update" reappear after installing the latest version 49.0.2725.64 (tried to reinstall it both ways: using web installer and using off-line package). After restarting the browser the menu item and red background on the Menu button reappear again. Seems the issue is may caused by partial blockage of opera.com online services in my country (I can't open *.opera.com sites without VPN enabled + web setup is able to download anything only via VPN tunnel).
    OS: Windows 8.1 64

  • OMenu > About Opera

    • Install path - go with the Explorer -.
    • Locate latest version folder.
    • Rename opera_autoupdate.exe file inside it.

    To update later, roll back the steps or use the offline installer.

    If the autoupdate worked fine before, try a StandAlone installation to aknowledge if it's country blocking related.

  • @zalex108, thanks for the instructions, but it didn't work for me. I have 2 folders with the same version number
    49.0.2725.64 and 49.0.2725.64_0. I've renamed opera_autoupdate.exe in both folders and restarted the browser - but the message to update is still there ...

  • Try deleting renaming/deleting cache folders.

    You'll find the path in using the same way
