[Solved]Always installing in appdata

  • hello,

    I have a new win10 notebook and want to install the current opera pc version.
    In the setup i checked the options and changed it to "program files" and "all users".
    Anyway it is always installing into appdata of the current user.
    The user has local administrator privilegs.
    Also I tried both, the online installer and the full offline version.

    Any Ideas?

  • @bo3rn Like any Windows program, the (user) data will be stored under AppData while the program itself is installed in Program Files.

    Or you a saying that even choosing Program Files as the installation directory, Opera is not being installed there?

  • Thanks for the reply.
    It was the program itself installed in AppData.
    Anyway I got it fixed. Restarting after the uninstallation helped. Guess something got stuck on my notebook.
