Spotify Crashes on Start - Windows 10

Spotify Crashes on Start - Windows 10

Version 1.044.100.ga60c0ce1 on Windows 10 64 bit.


Crashes right when program starts.  Shows black screen for a few moments then crashes and disappears from Notification area.  Task Manager shows that it is not running.  Uninstalled and reinstalled various times and restarted my machine.  Problem persists.  I think this version is the problem.  Waiting for an update.  Any recommendations are appreciated.


Web player is working but I prefer desktop.

Did more digging today.  Found this post, something similar but that solution did not work.


Then played with the options in the Properties (right clicked on Spotify executable) in C:\Users\nnnn\AppData\Roaming\Spotify where nnnn is my user name on my computer.  In the Compatibility tab under Properties changed to Run as Administrator.  That seems to have solved the problem.
