Proxy-Settings at LogIn after new Update

Hello people,

 

I installed Spotify at work and wanted to log-in. I knew I need to configure the proxy settings
in order to get a connection with Spotify and I remember you can set them at the Login-Window,
but it seems like that Login-Window got strongly reconstructured after some Update and I can't
find the Proxy-options anymore.

I use Windows 7 Professional 64Bit and the newest downloadable Spotify-Client. 
I already did some stuff like: plugging out the network cable - etc.

So how can I change my proxy settings without logging in (which isn't possible at the moment)? 

Greetings Tenebrarum

HI,

 

I managed to solve the issue.

Edit the prefs file in D:\Profiles\<user>\AppData\Roaming\Spotify

Add or modify the following lines:
network.proxy.pass="YOUR PROXY PASSWORD HERE"
autologin.username="YOUR SPOTIFY USER NAME"
network.proxy.addr="YOUR PROXY ADDRESS@http"
network.proxy.mode=2
network.proxy.user="YOUR PROXY USER"
core.clock_delta=0

Launch Spotify, it works !!! :-)

 

If you have a facebook login mode, you have to login on Spotify Website and add a standard login/password for all your devices, then use this login/pass in the prefs files as explained above.

 

Thanks you for nothing Spotify, for the user interface getting worse and worse each new version! >:-(

Same issue here.

Unable to use Spotify at work anymore.

Need the proxy settings to login, need to login to change proxy settings.

Thinking about cancelling my account because I mainly use Spotify at work. :(

Moreover it is impossible to manually edit pref files if the proxy requires user and password entry.

:( :( :(

did it solve your problem? I am having similar difficulties but I need to set up spotify so it will accept my wpad.dat file. Do you have any ideas? thank you

Yes, you can edit the wpad.dat file in order to retrieve the proxy settings. Then use the proxy as I explained.
It is a bit complicated but it worked for me :-)
In the wpad.dat file you have all the proxies for your company, depending on various criterions.
Hope this will work for you! :-)

You can delete the line related to the user in the Prefs file. Should work
