Windows 8.1 64 bit
My Question or Issue
Spotify causes Windows 8.1 to crash hard with a Blue Screen Of Death (BSOD).
I easily determined that Spotify was causing the problem because I log all changes, and the last change I made was installing the Spotify application. Since removing the Spotify app, the system has been stable.
I switched to Premium because it's currently the only way to get 320 kbps. Since the app crashes my PC, and I can't risk installing it, there's no reason for me to continue with the Premium service.
I've read a lot of reports of similar issues with the app (here and elsewhere), covering the last several years, including some that are marked as 'solved' and are anything but solved. I found no reasonable solutions anywhere.
UPDATE: I found a workaround. I run the Spotify app in a Windows 10 VMWare virtual machine. So far it works great and audio quality is good. Of course, I'd rather not have to do that, so I look forward to a real fix from Spotify.
