Pandora Gadget on Windows 7 64bit

You can download the Pandora.com gadget for Vista because its working fine for Windows 7 as well. But you need to make few tweaks to your system to work the Pandora Gadget with Windows 7 64bit version. There is no support for x64 from Adobe flash and the Pandora Gadget requires you to have x32 sidebar not x64 sidebar.
Here's what you need to do.

Microsoft Windows 8 Pro 3UR-00001 (Google Affiliate Ad)

To enable the x32 Gadget sidebar, simply do this:

  • In the System Tray right-click on the Gadget Sidebar Icon. Click on Properties!
  • Make sure to uncheck the “Start Sidebar when Windows starts” option
    Open the Explorer and Browse to C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Sidebar
  • Go to Start – All Programs and right-click on the folder “Startup”. Open it in a new window.
  • Now drag and drop the sidebar.exe from C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Sidebar into the startup folder
  • VoilĂ , now the Windows x32 Sidebar will auto-start whenever you log into Windows
