This message continues to display.  I click restart and the message is still there.  I can x the message but I want the latest update.  My billboard app is not loading.  The rest of the program seems to be working.  How can I make sue I have the latest update?  I checked about Spotify, and it says I need to update.  Please help!

 

Thanks.

spotify version 0.9.0.133.gd18ed589 says I need 0.9.2.18.


I would recommend NOT updating to 0.9.2.18 - it is full of bugs, including the fact that it crashes when you click the help button.

Ok, Thanks.  I was considering becoming a premium member, but I guess I should wait for a more stable client.  My Billboard app does not work either, it was one of my favorite apps.


Try exiting Spotify (File > Exit), manually deleting the following folders (which are hidden):

C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Spotify

C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Spotify

 

Then go to Start > Control Panel > Programs and Features > Spotify > Uninstall. 

Restart your computer 

Then reinstall using this installer: http://download.spotify.com/Spotify%20Installer.exe

 

Does it work now?
