I had to do a system restore & my Spotify stopped working when I did. I redownloaded the set-up file & tried to install it again. I keep getting Error Code 17. I have deleted the file several times & have tried it again & again, rebooting my computer each time, cleaning out my web cache, my cookies, cleaning up my entire hard drive, disabling my firewall, everything that I can think of. Nothing is working. I keep gettiing the same error. I'm lost without my Spotify! Please advise! =(
And I'm running the fully updated version of Win 7 Pro.

I deleted spotify because when I tried to open it it did not open ( but it did earlier that day) and when I tried re-downloading it, it kept giving me error 17. What do I do?

Windows 7 - Spotify Installer error code 17
I had the same issue but resolved by simply installing the spotify installer in safe mode.
For those who are not familiar with safe mode do the following:-
1) Reboot your computer and immediatley start pressing F8 during the inital boot sequence until you get the Safe Mode Menu.
2) Select Safe mode with Networking.
3) Start the Spotify Installer, if successful login.
4) Restart computer and start spotify normally
Hope this helps, worked for me.
