Ok, I am sorry to hear about this ongoing issue. Does Spotify show a black window before crashing? If it does, please try one of the three methods below:
Method 1 - Compatibility Settings
Go to C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Spotify
Right click your Spotify.exe and go to properties.
Click on Compatibility tab.
Make sure the option "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" is disabled.
If it is disabled, try enabling "Run this program as an administrator" and see what happens. If nothing is changed, return to normal settings.
Verify with the same procedure if SpotifyLauncher.exe has the same issue
Method 2 - GPU
In this case, you have to verify that you have the latest drivers for your graphics card. Depending on your GPU it can either be Nvidia GeForce Experience (or its' Nvidia equivalent software), AMD Catalyst or any other program of your graphics card.
Method 3 - Start Spotify with command (Thanks Peter!)
Type "Run" (without quotation marks) and hit Enter.
As long as the Spotify directory hasn't been changed, copy and paste this command:
I am having the same issue with the iPad version and the iPhone version. I have found that I can have it stay open if I take it off-line. But the second he goes online the program crashes
This is not an iPhone/iPad/MacOS forum. This is for Windows/Linux/WebPlayer users. Please post your issue in the forum that it belongs so experienced users in the area can assist you. I am sorry mate but I can't help you because I don't have knowledge about the iOS-Spotify situation.
