I am trying to launch Opera on Windows XP , but instead of launching
opera it launches IE.

I also downloaded the selenium standalone jar and saved it in
C:/Ruby/Bin and also created environment variable SELENIUM_SERVER_JAR .

Below is the code that I am using to launch opera:

require 'rubygems'
require 'watir-webdriver' :opera

The Versions of various applications is as below:

Opera Version 12
watir-webdriver (0.5.4)
selenium-webdriver (2.35)

It works for me with:

Windows 7 x64
Opera 12.17
watir-webdriver (0.6.9)
selenium-webdriver (2.41.0)

Make sure you use the latest versions of everything except Opera itself,
which must be version 12.
