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.
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!
