  • can anyone tell me if opera 12.16 woks well with windows xp

  • It does work well. At least the 32-bit version does. The modern Opera/Chromium is also fully functional under XP.

  • how can i tell if i have 32 bit

  • Look at the Help menu, About Opera.

    The setup files are also named differently:

    64-bit = Opera_1216_en_Setup_x64.exe
    32-bit = Opera_1216_en_Setup.exe

  • If you're actually asking whether you have the 32 or 64-bit version of Windows XP, the "offical" Microsoft answer is
    ( ) :

    Click Start, and then click Run.
    Type sysdm.cpl, and then click OK.
    Click the General tab. The operating system is displayed as follows:
    For a 64-bit version operating system, Windows XP Professional x64 Edition Version < Year> appears under System.
    For a 32-bit version operating system, Windows XP Professional Version <Year> appears under System.

    Just be aware that a few people have reported some problems with 64-bit Opera 12.16 that don't seem to crop up in the 32-bit version. Since Presto Opera (12.16 and earlier) are no longer in development, any such problems are not going to be fixed. FYI, In any case, later Opera versions (>15) don't exist in anything other than 32-bit editions.

  • ok new question why when i click down load 12.16 i wind up 18

  • You shouldn't. Are you at Opera's own download page (Opera. Made for your computer)? About 2/3 of the way down that page, you should see:

    Looking for the previous version? Download Opera 12

    That's the link to click that will get you 12.16.
