Spotify Will not install

Every time I download Spotify it completes the download, but will not install. It says it's installing, then comes up with an error that says "Spotify could not be opened. Error code 17" every time. I am on Windows 7 and I hade it on here before, but it was messing up every time I opened it so I uninstalled it and was going to reinstall.

Hey :) 


Does downloading the full installer from this page correct this for you?
