Can't install Spotify because I'm using administrator account?

I'm using Windows 7, and of course I'm the administrator...

 

Why does the Spotify program refuse to install, and tell me I can't install it on an administrator account, but only on a normal account.

 

Whut??

 

I got one account, one user, it's me!

There must be a way to install Spotify regardless what account you have on the computer?

 

I'm speechless, never ever encountered this issue before in any of my programs!

Hi.

 

I actually just found the solution minutes before your comment, https://community.spotify.com/t5/Accounts/quot-Please-install-Spotify-using-a-normal-account-instead...

 

But I think it's strange that Spotify releases an app with that kind of installation bug..

 

I had to set the app to compatibility mode for Windows 7, even thou I'm running Windows 7, but that apparently worked..

 I also needed to search Google to find that post, I didn't find it by searching here..

Hey @jercho, welcome to the Community.

Hope you're doing great!

Please check this thread for a more advanced uninstallation of Spotify. To install Spotify just download it from here.
Try to create another user account and install Spotify there as well to see if that makes a difference.

Let me know how that goes 🙂
