I post this a lot. And I mean a lot So why not post it in a thread as many people seem to be complaining about it on here:) PC users: and then used this Go to C:/Users//Appdata/Roaming/Spotify 1.
Make a new empy text file 2. Name it Spotify_new.exe 3. Right click the file and make the file read only 1. Make a new empty text file 2.
Name it Spotify_new.exe.sig 3. Right click the file and make the file read only Spotify will not be able to update because it can't delete the files, because they are read only, all future upgrades will fail. This method is easy to use and permanent. The above instructions aren't good enough. So what you need to do is download the installation file 1) Unsintall the old 0.9 version.
2) Install the new 0.8.5 version. Old Version Winrar there. 3) DO NOT LOG IN.
Skype Ing For Pc. 4) Go to this location C: Documents and Settings Application Data Spotify 5) Make the two files as above: - Make a new empy text file - Name it Spotify_new.exe - Right click the file and make the file read only - Make a new empty text file - Name it Spotify_new.exe.sig - Right click the file and make the file read only Log in. That seems to run in a crazy counter-intuitive in terms of its play list, enqueueing and so-forth. Dunno, for me I only use it to check out stuff because I don't subscribe.
So it's not really important how long it takes to show me the welcome screen after boot-up. I only ever sample some stuff and if I like it I buy it so I can then play it using a piece of software that doesn't make me hate the developers with a passion. The only reason I'd be using it enough to give a shit about this is if I had a subscription, in which case the point would be to not ever buy music again and wed myself permanently to their system.
The program lets you create and edit playlists, play on shuffle, repeat playlists, pause, display the album covers of the music you are listening to, and integration with Last.fm. Plus, in spite of being a streaming music player, Spotify lets you listen to any song from a specific point, and even lets you play your local files using the same app.
