This issue seems to be with usernames that contain special characters.

 

You need to create a new temporary folder in C:\(outside the 'Users' folder), put there the installer file and run it from there.

 

The full installer could help too: http://download.spotify.com/SpotifyFullSetup.exe

(Make sure you're running the installer as Administrator → right-click and "Run as Administrator".

It has helped another Windows8.1 user too 😉

Hi there,

 

I recommend you to try installing the Spotify directly from the Windows Store app.

It's available here.

 

Hope this helps! 🙂

I'm having the same issue. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the desktop app multiple times. I have tried to remove high quality listening as well. I got a new iphone last week, could this be the cause of it?

using the answer given did not help. Feedback from resulting dialogue box said to   "use normal account instead of administrator's"
