yeah, alright, ill try that a couple more times! cheers
So yeah, same as the other guys, couple times uninstalling and rebooting and reinstalling sorted the issue. so for people reading other threads, theres NO NEED TO DO A CLEAN INSTALL OF YOUR OPERATINGSYSTEM ;)
I've been having a very similar issue too and it's really been ticking me off. I have my spotify on my laptop which works fine (it's automatically logged into mine every time it opens) but whenever I tried logging in on another user on my laptop or on an other computer entierly it would either open and shut down or open and freeze until i have to restart my computer. I realized the difference is I have to log in when im on a different user or computer, so when I logged in this time I used my facebook account's email (since it's connected to my facebook) and it got me in with no problems. I think it's an issue with the spotify accounts.
(I didn't remember commenting on this but whatever lol) I actually solved my problem, not quite sure how (It was a while ago) but it was fixed. I think for some reason it just wasn't letting me log in through facebook like it's supposed to because my accounts are linked, so I had to just type out my email the account was on as the username and the password instead. I don't know if that's what your issue was but hope it helps (If you're still having this issue at this point).
I am using Windows 8 and have uninstalled/reinstalled multiple times. I have restarted between the uninstallation and the reinstallation process as well as added it to apps in the windows firewall. It won't even open for me. It won't show up in the processes and when I check the event log this is what I see for an error:
