Opera installation fails (on Windows XP Prof.)

  • Windows tell there is a problem with Opera Installer and closed it.

    I saw it on two different computers; one has older version of Opera,
    so at least older version could be installed on it; possibly newer
    version of Opera Installer needs some library not present here.

    OS: Microsoft Windows XP Professional SP3

    AppName: opera_ni_stable.exe AppVer: 25.0.1614.71
    ModName: opera_ni_stable.exe ModVer: 25.0.1614.71

  • What processor does your system have?
    IIRC later versions of Opera will not install on older processors (a restriction caused by Chromium I believe, not by Opera.)
    :)

  • Maybe this is my problem. Have tried to install 26 and when exe is downloaded and I hit 'install' or whatever, 'it' 'says' installer has encountered a problem or something like that and I can choose to send and error report to MS.

  • Um, should have asked, if the above is the case, what is the newest opera that I can install?

    Thank you!!!

  • Lex, on XP Home, I use a combination of 3 browsers.
    You could install an older version of Opera (even Opera), but you shall consider redistributing your browsing habits towards the one(s) that is (are) up-to-date, and in any case, sooner or later upgrading your computer to meet the new day.
    I have a Chrome here, I use it as a major browsing browser. But - the latter being automatically updated, constantly - it feels/seems that my OS/machine are/is getting more and more troubled to handle even quite easy tasks very often.

    Here's your problem, you need at least a SSE2-capable processor to run recent versions of Opera and other Chromium-based browsers.

    I think the newer you can get is Opera 22.

  • opera 20 0 1387 91 is the newest I could install.
    Thanks! I guess that'll do!

    For a time.
