No, didn't work. Even if I right-click on the opera.exe from explorer and choose Run As... it dosen't work.
I can't find any error log either.
Does anyone know if opera writes to a text log file?

Download Opera browser with:
I am new to Opera and trying it out on Windows XP sp3. I always like to run a browser as a limited user to prevent websites from installing software as I browse, so I installed Opera 36 with the option "for all users". The Opera works if I log into Windows XP as the limited user and run a simple batch file (jk.bat) with this command in it:
where e:\OperaStable is a copy from c:\Documents and Settings...Opera Stable which I recursively unprotected (this is not a permissions problem)
However, if I am logged in as the admin user and I run ----> C:\WINDOWS\system32\runas.exe /user:joek_local e:\opera\jk.bat
it does not work and everythings hangs. The browser comes up but nothing is responsive. Even if I runas with the admin user with /user:joek it still does not work. It refuses to work from the runas command...
Firefox never gave me a problem launching this way:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\runas.exe /user:joek_local E:\firefox43\firefox.exe
I like to log into Windows XP as the admin and launch browsers as a local limited user with runas. This has worked well for me in preventing unwanted software installs...
Does anyone have any insight as to why this is not working?
Any help is greatly appreciated...
