For some apps, it works very bad with googles application specific password and you will have to do that every time, or just disable it. I'm not sure if Google is at the fault, or the software maker. I had the same problem when I used Pinnacle Studio 15 to upload Videos to youtube, I just disabled it, but for every other piece of software I used, it has worked flawlessly.
Something you can try, (In case you havent) Make SURE that you tell the software to remember the password every time you start it. Hopefully it will remember the password and let you log on.
