Blog » Opera 11 won't start on Windows
Today I've faced with a problem – Opera 11 couldn't start on Windows XP and showed the following error:
Opera has failed to access or upgrade your profile. This may have occurred because your computer has insufficient recources available or because some files are locked by other applications.
From the error message we can understand that the problem is in the user's profile. So probably Opera can't access some files in its user folder (%USERPROFILE%/Application Data/Opera).
I tried to execute Opera under another user and it had launched successfully. This meant that the problem was really in the profile and not with the whole Opera installation.
Everything had started to work after a scandisk check ("Properties of a drive -> Service -> Check") – a lot of files in the Opera user folder were orphaned.
