I get this error:
Setup was unable to create the directory "C:\Program Files\Pandora"
Error 5: Access is denied.

Haven't had a problem with other new programs on this Dell Inspiron running Win10 Home

OK, I could install by running the installer as administrator.
But now I have to run the program itself also as administrator??

Running the Installer in Administrator mode allows the installer to do all the necessary tasks for the installation.  Some of the task require Administrator rights to complete.  When Pandora is started from the shortcut created by the Installer, Pandora starts in User mode unless you right-click the Icon and then select Run As Administrator.

It seems that gmail doesn't work (using app password, or OAUTH) if NOT run as administrator. SO I am running always as administrator now.

I use Gmail and use OAUTH2 and do not run as Administrator.

What happens in User mode and attempt OAUTH2 mode authorization?

Seems like Google wants to talk to some thing or another, but it doesn't complete.
I reverted to running in Administrator mode and Basic authentication port 995, and that works.

The first time you use OAUTH with Google Gmail, there are some dialogs that happen on the web browser to set thing up.  When the setup is completed, Google wants to open a webpage on the local PC and there is no server to answer so things just spin forever.  Just close the browser window.  Then right click on the task in the Pandora Task window and select Stop.

Now you should be able to check email on Gmail using port 995 but with OAUTH authentication with your correct password in the Personality and not the App Specific Password.
