I am able to open the Opera browser using Selenium Opera driver. But I am unable to navigate to any URL using: driver.get("www.google.com");

Opera driver starts and doesn't load the given link.

-- Adding the failure trace from comments:

org.openqa.selenium.WebDriverException:
com.opera.core.systems.scope.exceptions.ResponseNotReceivedException:

  • Welcome to SQA, User27. When you say, "Opera driver starts", do you mean an Opera window actually comes up?

I wrote installation instructions for watir-webdriver: Opera with watir-webdriver on XP. It was a while ago, but as far as I remember on Windows XP I had to install Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package (x86).

//Initialize the opera driver ....

WebDriver driver;
Selenium selenium;
driver = new OperaDriver();
selenium = new WebDriverBackedSelenium(driver, "url here");

    Sakib, you don't really give enough information here for your answer to be really good, particularly for such an old question. It seems too obvious for the original poster to have missed.
