My Question or Issue

So i've been trying to make the Spotify work on my Notebook, but it always end up in a error 117 - 'Maybe the firewall is blocking spotify...' i have already tried everything i could think off, i changed the proxy to no proxy, i added spotify as a exception to the windows firewall, i turned off the windows firewall and the kaspersky free to see if anything happenned but it's still shows the same error 117,

The funny thing is that during a small time frame of 2 to 3 days it worked normally and then when it got back to showing this error mensage. Please if you could help

i would love to be able to acess spotify from the app instead of using the web player.

Hi @VictorVirgolino, thanks for writing!


Can you please try these steps:


- Uninstalling Spotify.

- Removing any Spotify entries from your firewalls (be sure to check any security software, Windows Firewall and your router firewall if you have one).

- Install Spotify again.

- Double check it is on the allowed lists in your firewalls. If you are using Windows Firewall, go to Start > Control Panel > Windows Firewall > Allow a Program or Feature through Windows Firewall > Spotify > Tick Private and Public boxes. 


There's also this link in portuguese that might help you.


Let me know if it works!


Ah, e se preferir pode responder em português :)
