error code 50

I've tried ten times to install spotify on my windows desktop.  I have had my firewall disabled for the last several attempts.  My internet is working fine on other things.  It keeps adding more "minutes left" in the download and then will eventually give "error code 50".  This error is not listed in your error code list on the FAQ.

 

Thanks in advance.

I've also now tried using Chrome and IE for the download.  No luck.

Hey! Welcome to the community :) 

 

The default Spotify installer you download is just a basic installer that downloads the rest of the files it needs, that might be where the problem is. 

Try downloading the full installer manually from here and see if that helps.

Hey! Welcome to the community ;) 

 

Do you have any anti-virus software running which might be messing with the download?

Your 'here' link in the sentence, "Try downloading the full installer manually from here and see if that helps", worked for me, whereas the download button on the Spotifty website did not work.  Thanks a lot, Peter.  I'm sure you are a good band leader.

Re: error code 50 - windows 8 and error code 2

Hello, I have problems downloading/installing Spotify. The 'normal' download stops at the last second and i get the message that i have to connect to the internet or disable my firewall.... My internet works fine and my Norton 360 is disabled completely. I tried to use the full installer (as found on the community page) but the result is that the file is corrupt with error code 2. Its a new computer with windows 8 and ive tried it with IE and Firefox.... Thanks
