Spotify won't download!

I have had spotify for a while now but about a month ago it deleted itself from my laptop. I have tried at least 10 times to re install it but after I have pressed run, the spotify installer just disappears. Someone please help? It is so annoying!

Interesting.

 

Can you see if there is any Spotify process running in Task Manager - kill it if so and then try the installation. Does that help?

 

If not, are you sure the old one has actually been deleted? Check in the Programs and Features section of Control Panel and if you still see it there uninstall from there before trying to reinstall.

I have been having the same issue and tried both of the above suggestions and neither worked for me. Does  anyone have any other suggestions?

Re: Spotify won't download!

I have deleted my old account and deleted all Spotify files on my Mac, and have tried unsuccessfully to download the program again with a new account. Please help! When I click on restart download, absolutely nothing happens.

Try using one of the following links:

For Windows - http://download.spotify.com/Spotify%20Installer.exe

For Mac - http://download.spotify.com/Spotify.dmg
