Question

no registered application for this extension

by theuglybeast / August 11, 2012 5:34 PM PDT

Dear Sir,
I had no problems with CNET but when I got this new PC every time the TechTraker says I have new updates, every time I try, it says "no registered application for this extension". This is using my normal browser Opera. When I copy and paste the address to Internet Explorer, no problem but why does it give me this problem and I would much prefer to do it on Opera.

Beforehand I had Windows XP. Always I use Opera.

In reply to: help

this link tells you how to spoof the user agent so the site "thinks" it is being accessed with Internet Explorer
http://whatsmyuseragent.com/SwitchingUserAgents.asp

You will want the number 3 (three) option from the dropdown box and be sure to save it.

The latest Opera also offers a dropdown user agent selector as a button preference you can add to the toolbars.
