New Pandora Layout

This change broke OpenPandora.
Please wait for a fix.
Sorry for the inconvenience.

Wow, thanks for jumping on this so quickly... I use OpenPandora EVERY DAY and was sad when I saw it wasn't loading prop anymore.

Big thumbs up!

Eagerly awaiting the patch for this awesome app :)

Wow, I am very impressed that for one that you jumped on this update so quickly and for another I was alittle worried since I thought you had abandoned OpenPandora. Since its been a year and a half.

But THANK YOU so much!! I use also use OpenPandora every day. It keeps my browser from using so many resources.

OpenPandora is a brilliant UI into a brilliant service. Thanks for developing such a great application and also for your continued support.

Awesome! I don't know if I could get through my work day w/o this program...seriously. Thanks!

INANE said...

Thanks for the program and thanks for updating it.

Here's an (unofficial) fix to the problem that works for me. It also includes an updated interface to match Pandora's new look. Unzip into your OpenPandora installation folder. If you have any problems with it, let me know.

I'm going to send an email to the project owner shortly on getting the changes worked into the official release.

fret_24 said...

I have installed the fix and it does indeed work. Thanks for posting this.

NightShadow said...

Thanks for jumping on this so quickly... I also thought the project had been abandoned.

And thanks for the fix, Kevin! The fix works for me as well. :)

Its amazing how a small thing like OpenPandora has such huge impact in my life. You can picture a grown man with gray hair in a fetal position sucking his thumb in the corner of the room - I seriously cannot operate with out it! All is right in the world again. Thanks Kevinmcr - the unofficial version seems to work just fine!!

Steven said...

thanks for the fix so fast!!! do you know of a way we could get this integrated into vista media center? so i can use pandora on my xbox then my life will be set hahaha....

Steven said...

oh and thanks kevin!

The fix didnt work for me (running Vista x64), it complains about flash.ocx missing. It tries to install flash over and over but does nothing when I click install. I opened IE and manually updated flash to latest version but this did not fix the problem.

I'm getting the same "flash.ocx" problem on Vista 64.

kevinmcr said...

It looks like the problem is related to OpenPandora using the 64 bit version of IE to load the webpage. But there's no 64 bit version of Flash Player, so it fails to load Pandora. I've recompiled it with a x86 target CPU, which I think may fix it, though I have no way of testing it. It's up at the same location as before.

The old version of OpenPandora didn't have the problem, right?

Thanks for the quick fix and the awesome program. I'm just like everyone else here needing my Pandora fix all day long.

Keep it up!

Thanks! I don't know what I'd do without this at work. I'm glad to see you're still working on it.

Latest version seems to work on WinXP Pro. Thanks!!!

temp fix works fine on server 2003

fooey said...

Thanks Kevin! Your first version wasn't working for me on xp64, doing the flash install loop, but the latest one's working perfectly

soluanna said...

Mine complained about resizing window but after unzipping a second time, it worked. Thanks!!!

Arthur said...

The unofficial fix worked wonders for me on Vista 32bit... Thanks very much for jumping on this so fast! I was amazed as well about how much of an impact this had on my work day! =)

Thanks again guys!

Unfortunately mine doesn't work. when I run the executable nothing happens.
Windows xp sp3

Awesome response time, I love this app... will official fix have added features? Hint hint

kevinmcr said...

Unfortunately mine doesn't work. when I run the executable nothing happens.

It sounds like you might need to install .NET Framework 2. Since I developed the fix in SharpDevelop, the fix needs .NET 2 to run. The alternate is to wait for the official fix, which should be compiled for .NET 1.1.

AndyN3 said...

Works great for me now too - Windows Server 2008 x64 (wasn't working with last night's fix).

You guys rock! I couldn't get through the day without you!

Norman said...

I thought this had simply been abandoned, but I'm impressed by the immediate response. Glad to see OpenPandora hasn't been neglected; I still prefer it to the official Adobe AIR app for it.

Hey! Thanks so much for the quick fix. I think it needs to be noted at the beginning of the page that the zip file needs to be unzipped into the folder your currernt OpenPandora.exe is and it needs to replace that!

Again, thamks a million!

thechurchgeek said...

thanks to the previous anonymous person about unzipping the file into the old program folder, that explains why it didn't work when I first tried to unstall and run the program. all works great now!

AboveAverageDriver said...

THANK YOU!!!!

kevinmcr said...

I updated the zip to include a ReadMe.txt file =)

Gary Pollock said...

This fix does not work on:

vista ultimate x64

Reports: invalid win32 application.

Also, when I extracted the zip it said that the zip was corrupted.

Mike said...

Works great on Vista Ultimate x64 now, THANKS ! I figured it had something to do with IE64. To the previous poster Gary Pollock, I recommend downloading it again....it sounds like you got a corrupted download.

I don't normally post comments, but when it comes to Openpandora I'll make an exception.

Thanks for the original program, thanks to kevinmcr for the unofficial fix and thanks to the writer(s) for the anticipated official fix.
