Hi there, the new Spotify client doesn't work with Mac OS X 10.5.x

 

The one you downloaded will be 0.8.5, however it will automatically update on launch to 0.8.8 which is no longer supported on Mac OS 10.5 - it will just crash.

 

There is an old version for 10.5, however it has been reported that that will also automatically update as well - you should upgrade your Mac OS X version.

I have posted a work around if you don't want to upgrade your OS X version here which will prevent the client updating to the non-working one 😉
