Opera 23 and Next 24 Installers crash on XP

  • Regardless of whether I choose the small downloader or the offline full versions.
    The crash occurs as soon as the file extraction completes.
    Any clues?

  • What service packs do you have installed on your XP machine ?.

    Oh, and what is the basic specification (CPU for example) of your machine ?.

  • I note that the OP has not responded. However, I have the same issue with 23 and 24. XP SP2, Athlon XP 2000+, 1.25 GHz, 1 GB of RAM. This is from the Dr. Watson report (the periods replace spaces for formatting).

    Application exception occurred:

    ........App: C:\DOCUME~1\R*****~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\7ZipSfx.001\installer.exe (pid=692)

    ........When: 10/22/2014 @ 23:36:23.687

    ........Exception number: c000001d (illegal instruction)

    This is not a crucial matter, since that "other" browser runs very well on this 2002-vintage box when 12.16 isn't being cooperative.

    Peace and blessings!

  • The Blink-based versions require XP SP3 or equivalent. It is possible to add the missing file, though I forget which one it was ...
