Windows 8.1 x64 "Cant Open User Profile Directory, Lack insufficient priveleges

  • Hi,

    Just wanted to see if anyone else is encountering these issues with the latest stable version of Opera. Randomly if I start Opera Ill get a dialog "Can't open user profile directory, because you lack sufficient privileges". I have tried a full uninstall, install in another directory, and even granting the application admin privileges but I still get this issue with Opera.

    Here is the bug number in case anyone else has this issue.


  • Have you installed Opera for all users?
