My Question or Issue

I have accidentally unistalled spotify on my laptop. I have tried to download again the installer (also the offline version) but it doesn't open when double click on it. I saw another post about this issue that was solved by changing the folder of the installer but that didn't work either for me. Does anybody know how to fix this???

 

Thanks!

open your download folder, find spotify download, drag to your desktop- right click-properties-compatibilty-run as administrtor(make sure to click apply) brings you back to compatibilty-run in compatibilty mode-make sure windows xp is selcted-click apply- click OK-double click same spotify folder, worked for me and still working great, note i havent got a notfication to update but if you do i would NOT try and update spotify. let me know if this works for you.
