  • hey guys having an error pop up everytime i open opera now in windows xp says ""failed launcher-lib.dll. "" please re-install and i removed opera and reinstalled it 3 times but still getting the same error message? any help is appreciated and please be exact in laymens terms cause im a beginner lol

  • It should be "launcher_lib.dll", an underscore not a hyphen.
    The file should be in your Opera program folder (in the folder with the version name).
    Check that it's there.

  • its not and i redownloaded 3 times,so how do i get it back? thnx troy

  • Where did you download it from, and what version did you download ?.

  • well i think it was but i tried several on the other downloads to no avail heres what it tells me now when i click on about opera no mater how many times i restart it, it saz the same thing?

    20.0.1387.64 - Restart Opera to update to version 21.0.1432.57

    Update stream: Stable
    System: Windows XP 32-bit

  • Well, Looking at the text you pasted (displaying your Opera's version number), it is requesting a restart of the browser so that it can complete an update.

    Any reason why you did not get it from Opera's official website ?, just asking as it (the installer) has less chance of being tampered with.

  • i tried and others,and no matter how many times i restart my computer or browser it gives me the same message as above? and after ur last post i went back to and downloaded the 21st version and (tried 3 times by the way) it gives me after the download ""opera internet browser has encountered a problem and needs to close. we are sorry for the inconvience. sdo now im not only getting this message but still getting the original post message about fail loading launcher.....what should i do delete all files containg anything to do with opera and start over is that ok? im still running this version with the error messages? 20.0.1387.64 thnx troy and just out of curiousity how do i get rid of all files? simply uninstalling it leaves all kinds of files behind and im thinking maybe those have something to do with it?

  • I'm suspecting the user is using a processor without SSE2 support, which doesn't work with these newer versions.
    @beachbumtroy can you inform us if your Windows XP is fully patched to SP3 and what processor model you have?

  • my xp is fully patched and my processor is an amd athlon 1.4ghz .99gb ram

  • It does not support SSE2. Since version 35, Chromium does not support processors without SSE2.

  • ok appreciate all u guys help in this matter guess i go and start using my other computer this ones to old for everything lol thnx
