fatal error 1066

  • Running Opera 12.15. Getting this message now for 2 days. Recently did a windows update.

    Any ideas how to fix this or what's going on?

  • Seems to be a problem with check of SSSL certificates.

    untick the checbox
    hit save button.
    Restart Opera.

  • Tell more about your Windows and that update, if you please?
    If you rather UPGRADED your OS, note that your old downloaded Opera must've matched those, previous OS requirements – but may not do for the new system. Just saying...

    Any security concerns with that?


    Just an update to Vista, not an change to a new OS

  • Any browser requirements (built/version - IDK) do most probably change respecting any OS's version. Am I right?
    Check the requirements. If it's not the case - just to rule that out.

    Opera was running fine until the updates. It may not be related, but the timing of this new problem makes me wonder.

  • Back up your private data and take a fresh install for Vista.
    I guess you might need to make sure the installer finds the old one in the usual way - to overwrite (or maybe not - if Presto adopts any settings&co from the wherever existing non-standalone; I was just struck that you might be better off with installing into another directory - in order to clean the old "crap" afterwards).

    Yes, certificates can not be checked for beeing expired/revoked/invalided. This is a risk.

    Update to a newer OS/Servicepack or live with this deactivated security feature in Opera.

  • Well my (now unsupported) Windows XP is still checking for certificates, so Vista should certainly be doing so!
