Can't install Opera 21 in Windows XP

  • I want to download the latest version of Opera to my two Windows XP PC and laptop. But an error occurred in both computers as in this picture: http://oi62.tinypic.com/24qsi1e.jpg

    I am 60% sure it is because both computers are Windows XP (installation was fine in any newer versions). Is this because Opera was no longer compatible with Windows XP? I know that Microsoft no longer support this version, but is there a solution to this or is this just the way Opera right now is with the browser based off the Chromium project? I still have Opera 12.17 on both computers and they work fine.

    Thank you!

  • You need to have at least the service pack 3(or was it 2) installed for it to work, but it is still compatible with it.

  • XP SP3 and a processor with SSE2 support, which leaves out AMD before Athlon 64 and Intel before P4.

  • In my case for first two times when I tried to download , it completes upto 99% and failed error. . .
    next time when it stopped, I go to download , clicked on show in folder , and i renamed that application name from .exeopdownload or something to .exe , and it worked.
    Give it a Try . . !

    I do have XP SP3 on the first computer (not sure on the laptop). Maybe the problem is of my old processor.

    I guess on these Windows XP computers I will stick with the old Opera then...

  • You can check if your CPU supports SSE2 with the CPUZ software if you want to make sure that's the problem.
