two operas in one pc

  • hi i use opera and my brother too(he use 12.17) , and update your browser but the last version 21.xx launch my opera (ej :opera nico) not opera brother.exe , any idea to fix this?
    sorry for my bad english

  • Do you and your brother have different user profiles on the operating system (I'm assuming Windows)?
    If so, internet shortcuts should open in Opera 12.17 for your brother, and Opera 21.xx for you.
    If you share the same profile, that's more difficult, as only one browser can be the default for a user.

  • i have a only user prefile(win 7x64) , with 12.xx i create 2 folders of opera ,( opera and opera 2) and working good is impossible to make the same thing with opera 21.xx ?

  • Install it in a different folder for him, backup then move his data (Speed Dial, history, etc).

    Do not rename opera.exe, because the launcher.exe (the actual shortcut you should use to run Opera) will fail to find it.

  • That won't fix the problem of links in e-mails for instance always opening in Opera 21 when the OP's brother presumably wants them to open in Opera 12.17, if indeed that is the problem!
    They will still need to have different Windows profiles to do that.

  • I am install the new opera in other folder c/programs files / operabrother for example , but open my opera in other directory(the launcher.exe of operabrother , launch my opera in other directory WTF!)

    in opera 12.17 no have this problem , but working bad , is impossible fix this(i am not make a other windows profile) ?

  • Can't you just create two separated profiles, one for each other? It would solve problems not only with Opera but with almost all softwares on the computer.

  • I am install the new opera in other folder c/programs files / operabrother for example , but open my opera in other directory(the launcher.exe of operabrother , launch my opera in other directory WTF!)

    Open "installation_status.xml" on a text editor and check "<path subfolder="24.0.1543.0"" to see if it's pointing to the correct build folder.

    Note that the profile folder will be the same for an Opera branch no matter the folder in which Opera is installed.
