    What version of windows are you running win 98? And where are you downloading opera from?


    It's not a missing DLL file. When software, that is OS specific (XP or ME) is being run in your Win98SE environment. Opera is probably using a function that is not supported by the version you are running which is why I need to know the exact version of windows

    Okay let me see if I can find an older version of opera that is compatible with your system.

    Try this version:
    http://kernelex.sourceforge.net/2010/12/opera-11-compatible-with-kernelex/

    If no success follow these instructions:


    1. Download and install KernelEx (this download immediately when you click the link) http://sourceforge.net/projects/kernelex/files/latest/download?_test=goal
    2. Download and install 7Zip (Click on Green download icon) http://www.7-zip.org/
    3. Download the Opera 11.01 installer (this download immediately when you click the link) http://www.oldapps.com/opera.php?old_opera=86?download
    4. Extract the Opera files from the installer. Remember, as of Opera 11, the installer exe is really a 7Zip SFX archive.
    5. Right click on opera.exe, open the KernelEx tab and set the compatibility mode to Windows 2000 SP4.
    6. Click OK
    7. Run opera.exe.

    Good Luck!

    i wouldn't really recommend doing it that way,
    kernelex is for the more experienced user, than someone who isn't all that familiar with tweaking their system as will be necessary with using kernelex

    this is a straight download that WILL work 'out-of-the-box' with w98
    Opera version 9.64
    available here:
    http://www.filehippo.com/download_opera/5329/
    Requirements: Windows (All Versions)

    there used to be a few steps between - now the jump is to version 10.0, which leaves the w9.x series out :mad: oh well....
    Opera 10.0
    Requirements: Windows 2000 / XP / 2003 / Vista / Windows7 / XP64 / Vista64 / Windows7 64


    you WILL get a missing *.dll - but it can be safely ignored, it will still work (y) :)
    OR
    you can download the one for win me - but as i said - it will work without - you can even click in the window and tell it to not bug you anymore about it being missing :D :p
