    "Ask the sw creator for a windows conform App" I have never seen this message on Windows. For anything. Ever.

    However, perhaps it's because you downloaded and are trying to install a Mac or Linux version?

    Vivaldi should simply install on Win 7, 8, 10 without difficulty.

    Thinking on this, it could also be that the installer you downloaded is corrupted and should be replaced.


Looks like your connection to Vivaldi Forum was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
