Hi!
What's wrong with the profile?
A folder with the profile of one and no other profiles are not present.

I deleted the profile folder:

I deleted the profile folder:
D:\PortableApps\PortableApps\OperaPortable\App\DefaultData\profile
D:\PortableApps\PortableApps\OperaPortable\App\Opera\profile

Retain the original profile:
D:\PortableApps\PortableApps\OperaPortable\Data\profile

And Opera start without errors!
Thanks for the help

Not DefaulData

Don't delete DefaultData. That's only used if Data is empty.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

This is how i solved it without losing data

I noticed this.... when this error happens... looks like after upgrade, opera exports your profile data,that is browser data to app/opera/profile. Meanwhile it appears what opera uses to run is this Data/profile/data..... so after this upgrade opera exported all data from here to app/opera.... a profile data is also found here Data/profile/data but it's the default profile data. How it was when you installed it. If you delete this app/opera/profile ... although it will work, you will lose all your browsing data.
How i solved this problem and still kept my browsing data as it was just yesterday was...... i first copied this to desktop in case of error Data/profile/data. Then i moved this folder app/opera/profile/data to it ( Data/profile/data)

It said some files already exist ...i selected move and replace,that is overwrite to all......

after this ... start opera. It will work and you won't ever lose any data...browser history,cache, saved password ,add on, etc

well, i learned this after having this issue so i decided to post how i solved it. Good luck.

Eu, após uns falhanços, resolvi este erro do seguinte modo

Na pasta do Opera pesquisei por profile. apareceram 3 pastas, eliminei uma o erro continuou, (anulei a eliminação e eliminei outra) o problema ficou resolvido.
ATENÇÂO: Quem tiver a instalação num dispositivo flash, (NÂO pode eliminar) tem que copiar para outro local para poder recuperar o estado anterior, caso não elimine a pasta certa à primeira.
