v27 "failed to install"

  • I've been using Opera v12.02 on WinXP. I was having trouble today with some graphics not displaying so I clicked on the update line and v27 was downloaded and attempted to install. But after the installation closed the running Opera, I got a window telling me that Opera 27 had "failed to install" and "try again". I've tried again many times with no change, just "failed to install".

    Can someone tell me what I need to do at this point.

    Thanks...

  • I think I found the answer...downloaded from the Opera web site (instead of using the upgrade choice in the browser) and it send me v28.x which installed with no problemas. And installed separately so I also have v12 to fall back on if I need to. Can't beat that!
