Can't start latest version with -private flag.

  • I just upgraded to Opera 52.0.2871.37 running on my Windows 7 Ultimate x64.

    When I ran it using my old shortcut:

    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Opera\launcher.exe" -private

    I saw 4 white rectangles flash very quickly on the screen then disappear immediately. I found 4 opera.exe instances in the Task List. When I removed the flag "-private" from the startup link it started normally.

    How do we start the latest version in private viewing mode?

    Thank You,
