    Spotify UWP app is giving big error when opening


    When I try to open the new Spotify UWP app, I get "Windows cannot access the specific device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item." in C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\SpotifyAB.SpotifyMusic_1.57.332.0_x86_abunchofrandomcharacters\Sp..." (the window cuts off)

    I checked the directory, and it appeared that everything was there.

    Any help would be extremely appreciated.

    Thanks,


    :)
     

  2. Spotify app makes system restore fail

    I too ran into this exact same error message and code on my Surface Pro 2 (running Windows FCU v1709 Build 16299.248) a couple months ago when trying to restore my Surface Pro 2 to a state where it was working fine with vhd/vhdx files before
    I ran into some issue with them.

    Even after uninstalling spotify from the windows store (by right-clicking on the Start Screen Tile and selecting "Uninstall"), the error message still comes up every time I attempt performing a system restore. What gives!? I thought UWP apps are wrapped in
    a sandbox, thus shouldn't be able to tamper with such vital system components? Or that doesn't apply to Centenial UWP apps like Spotify here?

  3. Spotify app makes system restore fail

    Hi Leviozar Gam,

    My Surface Pro 2 is running the Windows FCU v1709 Build 16299.248. I have the latest Windows and Microsoft Store updates installed here in Canada, including the Spotify UWP app.

    Just re-attempted doing a system restore, with an automatic restore point created by Windows Update on 14/02/2018 while the Spotify UWP app is installed, and this time, it still resulted in the following error message
    and code (0x80070005):

    I disabled Windows Defender and re-attempted it, but it still resulted in the same error message as above. Probably still Spotify 'causing the issue.
