Hello! I'm running mac OS X 10.8.5 and today got a pop up to update Spotify, which I did. The application closed and then never opened. I went to open it manually but it was gone from my Applications folder. I redownloaded the installer and followed the instructions to reinstall. Spotify tries to open (the icon shows up on my dock and I see the app open for about 5 seconds) and then closes without any error messages.
Looking in my applications folder, Spotify is not there. I tried going through my library to delete my cache and application support for a clean reinstall but those folders don't exist either. However, if I right click on the app for the 5 seconds it's there and click "show in finder" then it pops up saying that it's in the applications folder, but it is literally the only thing in that folder.
I also tried the trick of disconnecting from the internet and trying to open spotify in offline mode but the same thing happens. Can anyone please assist me with figuring out why this is happeing? Thanks!
