I have the same issue: the Windows 10 app crashes upon launch; I uninstall it, restart the pc, reinstall it and it works for a few days. Then it starts crashing again, I repeat the procedure, it works and then it crashes again and so on. Is there a fix for it?
Just to double-check, have you folks tried a clean reinstall of the app? We recommend the clean reinstall as it'll remove the old drivers first and then install the new ones. It'll also get you the latest version of Spotify.
We also suggest you try logging in to your account, but on a different device. This way you can check if the issue is device-related.

Yes, of course I did, that's exactly my point. Besides, the Spotify appdata folder often is not even there in the first place. I don't know why this happens: sometimes I do see a "spotify" subfolder in appdata folder (and I delete it), sometimes I don't. After each clean reinstall, the app keeps working for a while, but eventually it stops working to the point that it does not even launch, so I have to repeat the reinstalling procedure again and again.
"We also suggest you try logging in to your account, but on a different device. This way you can check if the issue is device-related." I do use it on my Android smartphone and on my iPad: it does work there.
Every advice that you can find on Spotify FAQ or forum I already read and tried it, anyone has found out anything new, please? Thanks
Ivan, this issue is not device related. It is platform related E.g. Windows!
Many other users have experienced this issue and yet you guys seem to do nothing other than suggesting a typical clean re-install. It has not been working since mid December despite there being three updates for the Windows store app. Even the "offline installer" from your website fails to launch.
Both will open fine if the internet connection is turned off, yet as soon as internet is restored the Apps (both Windows store and .exe download) use up memory and when they peak at 3.5GB useage they crash.
As a Premium paying customer I have since given up and jumped ship to Tidal whose desktop app runs absolutely flawlessly. Other users have reportedly done the same.
