Can't even download Spotify

First, my Spotify was having issues updating, so I deleted the app so I could just download it from the site. But when I try to download it, it tells me it's going to take over an hour to do so then never makes it. 

 

Am I the only one having this issue?

Re: Can't even download Spotify

I'm having the same issue. I have a mac and I had downloaded Spotify and for a time it worked fine, but now when I try to launch the application, I keep getting an error and having to relaunch and sometimes it won't open. I thought uninstalling then re-downloading and installing Spotify would work, but now I can't even download it. Help me someone please, ha.

Hey! Welcome to the community :) 

 

What error are you getting when you try to download? Have you tried a different browser? 

Also, what version of OS X are you using?

Re: Can't Download Spotify

I've downloaded the installer, but once I hit run, it won't load. I'm running on Windows 7 Home.

A window just opens that says it's "downloading Spotify", but this goes on forever (even left it overnight), and it still doesn't load.

I've tried restarting, but no luck. Hope someone can help. Thanks!

Hey! Welcome to the community :) 

 

Does using the full installer package from: http://download.spotify.com/Spotify%20Installer.exe work?
