    Hello Cave, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Store apps are purchased and installed on a per specific Microsoft account thorugh the Store, and cannot just be copied over to another computer or account.

    If you purchase a "Metro" app on your computer while signed into the Store with your Microsoft account, then if you were signed into her account on her Windows 8 computer, you would have to first sign in to the Store with your Microsoft account. Afterwards, you would be able to install "Your apps" to her user account on her Windows 8 computer.

    The tutorial below can help give you more details on how to. Please let us know if you have any questions.

    Hope this helps,

NOVO STORE Network Store Not compatible with Windows 8
I have a 2 tb Network store on a 1 gig Ethernet, which worked fine on Windows 7. I ran the upgrade advisor this facility and software was not identified as a potential problem. However it does NOT WORK. It just says it is incompatible on Windows 8. The Novostore website is not helpful.
