Hello @petter_96720!

 

Sorry to hear you're having trouble with this. No worries though, I'm here to help.

 

You can try these methods and, hopefully, it will work:

 

1. In windows, you should try to execute the application with the compability tab checked (Right click in the Spotify Icon, properties, compatibility with Windows XP ).

 

2. After any update or after unistall Spotify and to run a new Install it stay stacked, so just execute the Windows Registry (Type regedit in the text field that appears in the Start Menu in Windows 7/Vista), then just go to Edit, and Search... and then delete all the keys you can find with the word Spotify (be careful to don't delete any other that don't say exactly that) and then you also should try to delete the folder "Spotify" created under the user folder in this route C:\Users\CHANGETHISFORTHEUSERNAME\AppData\Roaming.

 

If this didn't solve the problem, make sure to reply. I'll se what I can suggest next. Have a nice day, Jose 😉

Sorry to hear it's still not working. I found out that some people could solve this error by using this method:

1. Uninstall spotify (*When uninstalling it, some registry files will not be deleted, therefore creating this problem)

2. Install Ccleaner (Computer cleaner software) to detect the broken or empty files in the registry

3. Run the registry cleaner in the software after installing it (about 2-3 times just to be sure it cleans it completely)

4. Go to the Spotify website and download Spotify again.

Hope this helps, let me know if that helps 🙂
