Spotify will not re-install on Mac OS X 10.11.6


Spotify will not re-install on Mac OS X 10.11.6







     iMac, late 2015 model

Operating System

     Mac OS X 10.11.6  Yosemite


I've had to re-install Spotify from time to time, and previously have been able to use the following instructions as provided by Spotify:


  1. Click Spotify in the menu bar then Quit Spotify.
  2. Open Finder then click Go > Library in the menu bar.
  3. Open Caches and delete the com.spotify.Client folder.
  4. Click the back arrow.
  5. Open Application Support and delete the Spotify folder.
  6. Download and install Spotify.

On this ocassion the Spotify Installer progress bar never completes, and if I attempt to close the Spotify Installer, it warns me that installation is "almost complete," but it will never actually finish even after 20 or more minutes time has passed. I have restarted the computer and downloaded the latest installer twice, but the results are the same. Thoughts?

Kind regards,

Hey @2m_1np-4a519k, welcome to the Community.


Hope you are doing great!


That's odd. Have you tried creating another user account on your Mac and try to install Spotify there?


Let me know how it goes :)
