Post subject:  Spotify stops opening until restarting Winstep.

I use the Spotify application installed through the Windows Store, and since the application update to version 18.12 that at the end of a time the Spotify if it is closed and try to go back open it no longer opens. For it to normalize, we have to shut down Winstep and restart it again. This was not the case with the previous version 18.10.

I use the Windows version 10 (1809)

How are you closing Spotify? Also, when you try to open it again and it doesn't, can you see it listed in task manager?

I even close Spotify and it does not appear in the task manager.

I have this option in Spotify Disables:
Close button should minimize the Spotify window to the tray

Yes, but how are you closing Spotify? From the application itself? Or from the taskbar?

Also, what happens after you try to start Spotify again? Does it STILL not appear in Task Manager (check the Details tab!).

From the taskbar?

When I try to start the application it just does not open and does not appear in the task manager. But if I go to the Start menu and start the application it opens immediately.

On the other hand, when it happens I can not open Spotify through the NeXus Ultimate app, if I quit the NeXus Ultimate application and start it again, and try to open Spotify through your app, Spotify already opens.

What happens when Spotify refuses to run but you press the SHIFT key *while* clicking on the Spotify icon in Nexus Ultimate (or *double click* the icon instead of single-clicking on it)?

I noticed now that if double click it opens in the icon it opens Spotify, but with a click just does not open.

Ok, thanks, looks like Nexus Ultimate thinks Spotify is still running. I'll take a deeper look at this as soon as I can and I'll let you know what I come up with.

Thank you Jorge Coelho.

I will wait for the solution. As I said this did not happen in the previous version 18.10.

And I'm happy to help, mainly because I see that you're also Portuguese :wink:

Olá Jorge, tudo bem?

Olha esta última atualização do Winstep Nexus 19.2 Ultimate continua com o mesmo problema com o Spotify. Eu julguei que estivesse ultrapassada esta dificuldade mas hoje voltei a pagar para ter a minha conta Spotify Premium e assim que a conta atualizou, quando fechei e tentei voltar abrir a app, já só consigo abrir o Spotify com dois cliques, o que não acontecia quando tinha a conta grátis.

Portanto não sei se isso tem alguma influência com algum código no teu programa, mas o que é certo é que estava a funcionar bem e abri sempre com um clique enquanto a conta era grátis e assim que passou para Premium já não abre com um clique.

Abraço!

O problema é que eu não uso o Spotify aqui, o que torna dificil perceber exactamente o que se está a passar com a aplicação deles, especialmente se isso é algo que só acontece no premium.

O facto de ele só abrir com um duplo-clique indica que o Nexus acha que ele ainda está em execução (e, se calhar está mesmo, essa não será o tipo de aplicação que minimiza para o systray em vez de sair quando se fecha a janela?).

Olá Jorge,
eu pensei nessa hipótese, mas eu tenho essa opção desligada nas definições do Spotify. O que acho estranho é que fiz aqui um novo teste para tentar perceber um pouco melhor, e se eu encerrar o Nexus e voltar abrir, o Spotify depois já abre com um clique.

Só não sei determinar ao final de quanto tempo é que ele deixa de responder apenas com um clique.
