So today my Spotify broke, and every time I booted my PC Windows said 'Spotify has stopped working'. So I tried reinstalling, but that didnt help. After the download it shows the exact same message and it's gone. Deinstalling with the control panel resultet in the same error, immediately. So I thought maybe there is corrupt data on my drive, and deleted the Spotify Folders in %Appdata% and %Appdata%\..\Local, but still, same problem. Then I thought, it must be inside the registry, and deleted every key or value related to Spotify except Windows debug crash reports and the .mp3 file extension links. So there I am, with a computer that doesnt contain the word Spotify once, and still the installation wont start.
edit: Windows 8.1 64 Bit, Pro Edition. Also I had to deactivate hardware acceleration to make it work in the first place, otherwise it would simply show me a black screen. I use a laptop with intel HD Graphics and an additional AMD graphics card.
