Hello, and welcome to another won't open post.
I've seached through many of these threads for a solution, but none exactly match my specs and or problem I'm experiencing.
Basically it either crashes right as its opening, or I get "Spotify has stopped working" and I'm forced to Close program.
So it started about 2 weeks ago and with what little time I have, I haven't found a solution. I only started using Spotify for the first time on my PC 4-6 weeks ago. This seems to have started right after I installed a new Sound card; Creative Sound Blaster Z (PCI-E) Card, and associated drivers and software.
Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
Service Pack 1
0.9.1.57 (only one available for download)
I have tried multiple times to do a 'Clean Install'
I even tried uninstalling the Sound Card Drivers and Software.
Below is my most recent Application Error Event Log:
Faulting application name: Spotify.exe, version: 0.9.1.57, time stamp: 0x51d2cabf
Faulting module name: ntdll.dll, version: 6.1.7601.18205, time stamp: 0x51db9710
Exception code: 0xc0000374
Fault offset: 0x000ce753
Faulting process id: 0xe48
Faulting application start time: 0x01ce9af3c39d4c43
Faulting application path: C:\Users\Scott\AppData\Roaming\Spotify\Spotify.exe
Faulting module path: C:\Windows\SysWOW64\ntdll.dll
Report Id: 0ba1fa37-06e7-11e3-835e-f46d0440d1f2
Im not at all familiar with an Event Log. I just noticed it being used in other topics. However, when comparing multiple events I noticed tha the 'Faulting module name:' is not always the same; ntdll.dll (as above), spotify.exe and libcef.dll
It's been frustrating (especially with my new sound card) not being able to use Spotify.
Solved! Go to Solution.
After a quick brows through the most recent posts of THIS very active thread on the subject, I found The Solution!
I did indeed have one or more songs in a playlist that are no longer available.
Once I discovered these song(s) (from the web player/client), I simply deleted them for the playlist(s). The playlists created by 'Following' had to be 'Unfollowed' if they contained unavailable songs (Identified by grey text).
Once that was done, I closed the web client and then successfully opened Spotify!
This should be an easy fix for people reading this and should defiantly be addressed in the next Spotify Update.
