    Are you running the Windows app under wine?

    Make sure you type:
    Code:
    wine "Spotify Installer.exe"
    in a terminal. Do NOT double click the .exe

    Thank you Fershure but it still does not work,I think it is intended that we shall not have Spotify in Ubuntu !

    What I don't understand is why?So far as I know Spotify has never caused anyone any mishap in any distro !

    I managed to install it in an Ubuntu Lucid VM. I don't see why you're having issues. Are you sure you're starting the installer in wine from the terminal? What exactly happens and when?

    You could try this easy and simple solution:
    copy the the installer file to your wine Program Files folder, i.e.
    Code:
    /home/username/.wine/drive_c/Program Files
    and then run it from there.

    I struggled for ages, getting Spotify to work on Ubuntu, it breaking, re-installing, etc. -until I discovered We7.com which is basically like Spotify but web-based, works like a charm, and has less annoying ads.

    You're welcome
