spotAPI plugin error when launching Mac desktop player

Since Spotify has removed app support in their player, now every time I launch I get the following error message (attached screen shot). I've done a clean reinstall but still get the error. How do I remove spotAPI?!?

 

Error

Spotify 1.0.2.6.g9977a14b (v1.0.2.6.g9977a14b-14) has not been tested with the plugin spotAPI (null) (v1.0). As a precaution, it has not been loaded. Please contact the plugin developer for further information.

I did this and it cleared up the issue...

 

According to: http://alexp2ad.github.io/SpotifyMacRemote/

 

Uninstall

To uninstall the plugin just quit Spotify and then open Finder and browse to Macintosh HD > Library > Application Support > SIMBL > Plugins and delete SpotifyRemote.bundle

This is an entirely different library folder than the similarly named macintosh hd>users>*YOUR USER NAME*>library>etc.

 

An important distinction to make.


Yes...this.

That's weird...

 

I've passed this thread on for someone to take a look and see if this is a bug or not. It is currently the weekend, so I won't hear back for a few days.

Hey @bengoshow

When reinstalling, have you also deleted all of the associated Spotify files and folders within Finder > Library?

More instructions relating to this can be found here: https://support.spotify.com/us/learn-more/faq/#!/article/reinstallation-of-spotify

I'd also suggest removing any record of Spotify within 'Library' before performing a reinstall.

Hi Pete,

 

I've tried a complete uninstall a couple times, even doing a keyword search and removing any files/folders with Spotify, but the error message still shows up when I launch the reinstalled app.

 

It's not a huge deal, just a minor annoyance. Maybe it will go away on the next upgrade.

 

Thanks for your suggestions.

Same problem here, but with the plugin 'SpotifyRemote'.

The error message keeps showing up after a clean install. (uninstalled and removed everything with AppCleaner)

 

I don't use the plugin anymore, so I'd like to know if there's a way to remove it.

 

Thanks!

Thomas

Exactly the same issue here, but also with 'SpotifyRemote', which I also don't use.

 

Appreciate any help.

I'm getting the same error as the original post - spotAPI (null) (v1.0).

Same exact problem for me ! 
Clean install, Spotify 1.0.3.101, OS X 10.10.2.
