Opera 10.6 Beta Doesn't Start

42 posts in this topic

I installed Opera 10.60 beta, builds 3413, 3422, and 3426. None would start. I got a message "Failed to load opera.dll because: a dynamic link libary initialization routine failed."

Two posters on the Opera development team blog reported the same problem. Both were also running Win 98.

Does anyone know what is going on?

Has anyone got it to run?

Yes, I have Opera 10.60 beta (build 3422) and it running without problem.

Btw, I've used a classic installer and that was a clean installation.

Do you have KernelEx installed? I am asking because I just tried to disable KernelEx extensions for Opera 10.60 (which is upgraded over old install and is my default browser) and it fails to start with the error message mentioned by the OP after I have done this.

Opera.dll has no missing static dependencies and profiling it with Dependency Walker does not seem to yeld much clue as to what is wrong.

Well anyway installing KernelEx could solve the OP's problems if the Opera team doesn't do anything about it. (They don't seem too interested with fixing Windows 98/ME issues it seems to me unfortunately).

The main thing to do is tweak Opera to its full capability til it works the best

because Win98 is getting killed all over!

You can get the latest (or at least one that works) msimg32.dll at this web site.....

I would recommend you rename the old one and keep it before you copy the new one just in case you find a problem....I have had no problem using this one on an original Win98 system....

10.60 only runs if KernelEx is installed on your system. Currently using 10.60 RC3 Build 3545 (latest so far) as my default browser.

10.60 runs for me with out kernel sanders. lately it locks up more often i think if i let it sit long enough it works. i might down grade to 10.54. or switch to FF3.0 but, i'm guess opera uses less ram?

I have Opera 10.60 RC2 (build 3444) and I don't see any serious problem (not too much tests, honestly).

Btw, loblo, you've build 3445.

Yes, this is it, my mistake, and it runs flawlessly but I don't seem to be able to run it without KernelEx unlike 10.54.

Are you running Opera 10.60 on Windows 98 or ME?
