Default Opera 10.54 on Windows 98 SE

After updating msimg32.dll on Windows 98 SE, Opera 10.54 appears to
install and run without any problems. Without updating the DLL, Opera
will still run, but gives an error message about the transparency

last to run on Win98.

The msimg32.dll v5.00.1693.1 that comes with Win98 needs to be
replaced with v5.00.2218.1 that comes with Windows ME. For details,
see this thread:

motivated them to do it. How exactly did they choose which group to
post to. Why didn't they do a little more investigation to see what
might be the best group to post to.

So because this looks like some-what useful
