I restarted my computer last night and the VPN went down again. Seemed like the same problem as last time, as it wouldn't work for the remainder of the night. However, back up today..
@zalex108 (or anyone else), is there somewhere to check the VPN service status?
Thanks in advanced!
Thanks for your response, @zalex108!
Okay, so I went through the couple of different options. I will explain my experience, and how I eventually got it running:
First, I tried changing the folder name for the current profile folder, and this allowed the VPN to work again, but I lost all other customisation, etc. (obviously). When this happened, in the hope I would not have to manually change everything to the way I had it, I deleted the new profile folder created by Opera and reverted back to the original folder. After this the VPN again would not work again.
Next I tried to roll-back the update, as you gave the instruction for, but afterwards Opera would not open at all (even if I tried to launch directly from the application icon in the program files, rather than the shortcut).. I reverted back to the latest version folder..
Finally (and how I got it working with my profile in tact), I went back to the profile folder, renamed it, and opened Opera. It created a new profile folder as before. I then close Opera. Next, I went to the location of the profile folders, deleted the contents of the newly created folder and copied the contents of my original profile folder (that I had renamed) into the folder created by Opera (also, deleting the folder I had renamed afterwards). I opened Opera again, and hey presto! everything was back and the VPN worked again :love:
Thanks for your help @zalex108!! You saved the day! :cheers:
I hope that my experience can help you @operabobbob, and any others with the same issue.. If any of my explanation is unclear, please ask and I can clarify .
Opera seemed to be working fine for me until it asked me to restart to upgrade the browser to version 43.0.2442.991 (PGO)
Now I have the same problem described by Operabobbob.. It might be a complete coincidence it happened at the same time as the update.. but either way, it's painful.
I just got Opera a week or so ago, and was fairly happy with it - great options to save me battery life and system resources (kills Chrome and others in that respect)... Have had a some issues as it does not support some websites (and vice versa - like my banking site)... I could look past these little things as it worked for the most part, and integrated VPN was a key reason I got it (which worked great), and now not working already
Not sure if it's normal when "connecting" (because every time before now it connected really quickly), but I only have one location option now too
PLEASE HELP, OPERA!
