[Solved]How can I return to ancient version of opera ?

  • Hi,

    I have too much problems with this new Opera, and it's enough for me.
    For example, I can't use watch a windowed video, which is totally crazy when I am doing something else. The video return some seconds before many times, so it's totally impossible to watch a video when I am on an other website ...

    And, naturally, I'm always the only one who has this problem. So I'm tired with that version of Opera; I want to return to an ancient version. I found a website with all the versions of Opera, but my browser always update by itself ... How can I bypass this problem ?

    Thanks for your help.

    "You can run installer with --launchopera=0 switch and later start Opera with --disable-update", according to this post by @gmiazga.

    I don't understand ... ^^'
    In my launcher, I cannot do nothing except choose the destination of the software, the default browser etc ...

  • @marvinou The setup file and later Opera's "launcher.exe" must be invoked by creating a shortcut to these files, which you customize as described.

    Sorry for my poor English.

    EDIT:
    You could also simply rename Opera's "opera_autoupdate.exe" to prevent an automatic update.

    However, you would have to repeat this step after the next (intended) update, since this file is always created during an installation.

  • Yes, I found this solution !
    I have deleted autoupdate.exe and operacrashreporter.exe and it works !
    Thanks for help !
