Thanks for fixing this so fast. This app makes my day job tolerable.

I think that you may have forgotten to change the version number in version 0.6.8 - I have downloaded and reinstalled repeatedly, and the version I am running has the features of 0.6.8 but all indications (the About window, for instance) are that it is version 0.6.7.

I really appreciate your software - excellent thinking.

The About must show 0.6.8.7
May be the last (4th digit) confuses you

0.6.7 < 0.6.8.7

There seems to be a number of problems with this release:

The songs playing no longer appear on the titlebar, tray icon tooltip, and you can't access the option to copy it to clipboard (it's disabled), and it no longer sends the info to last.fm.

You also can't access the lyrics option (it's disabled).

I am running XP Home SP2.

I attempted to downgrade, uninstalling this version first.

The older version seems to have this same problem now too.

I think Pandora may have changed something and cause all this to break in your software. Might be something you want to check into.

I don't have any of these problems.
Try the refresh from menu, but wait couple of seconds to see changes; or just restart OP.

During install, receiving error:

Error opening file for writing: C:\Program Files\OpenPandora\AxInterop.SHDocVw.dll

Click Abort to stop the installation, Retry to try again, or Ignore to skip this file.

Never had this problem until I downloaded 0.6.8. Same error returns on every file after this one. Pandora would not open at all, uninstalled, attempted reinstalling, but getting same error. First time I've seen this.

try restart after uninstall

I tried the refresh option on the menu. It didn't fix the problem with song titles not displaying or any of the other problems I spoke of. Restarting OP didn't help either.

I still don't have song titles anywhere...not on titlebar, taskbar button, tooltip, and the options to copy it to clipboard or get lyrics are still grayed out.

What's is you system config?
Can you send it to openpandora@gmail.com

Has anyone tried to port this to Linux using Mono?

eitan said...

I believe this is not possible, because of IE control and Win32. Porting will probably require rewrite.

is there a way to turn off the clicking sounds when the next song plays?

great job on a fantastic app!!
