My Question or Issue
Spotify is giving the error message "Spotify can't play this right now. If you have the file on your computer you can import it." whenever I try to play any song on the Spotify Windows desktop app. My account is working with both the smartphone app on my Samsung phone as well as the web browser version on my computer.
As per recommendations both here and elsewhere on the internet, I have tried the following to no avail:
I am on a newly-built PC with little other software installed, so there ought not be any conflicts or bugs relating to other programs.

Probably you use a soundcard/DAC with a high sample rate.
I assume when you change your sample rate in your audio device win Win 10 to 16bit /194 khz it will work.
I experience the same and from my point of view this a bug in the app. Use instead the Web player. Bad workaround...but at least a workaround... 😕
