Can't download Spotify

Hello!

 

I have a new computer and cannot download Spotify on my new computer that I have.
Have tried to disable the firewall on my computer but still doesn't it?
On my new computer, I have windows 7 and my last record, I had windows 7 with.

 

This response I got when I downloaded Spotify:



The installer was unable to connect to the internet. Please make sure the computer is connected to the internet and that no firewall is blocking the connection and try again.
Error code: 51

 

My internet works great and have tried with my firewall, no error at all. Must be a bug or reached. Please help me fix this problem soon!
Hear from you soon! Greetings

Does downloading the larger filesized installer from here work?

Same problem here: on windows 8 PC can't download Spotify. Keep getting message "can't download Spotify right now, will try in xx seconds". And starts its count down timer again and again without succeeding in downloading Spotify.

 

Probably should stop my Premium account?!

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen of the Spotify-team,

Last month I took a premium 1-month free subscription, however, it is impossible to download music from your spotify site.

I mentioned Spotify in the list of firewall exceptions. I am using Windows Vista.

Please advise.

Thanks.
