    This app could not be installed. Error Code 0x80070005

    I have two user accounts on my Windows 8 Pro laptop. One user can install apps from the Windows 8 App store without issue, but I can't install apps when logged in to the other user account. Both accounts are part of local administratrs group. I looked at effective permissions for C:\Users\username\appdata fr both accounts, and the effective permissions are Full Control. I know the 0x8007005 is usually a permissions/access issue, but like I said this user is a local admin and has full rights including all subfolders to c:\Users\username.
    I am baffled.
    Also, I understand that you can install an app that has already been installed under another user by going to "My Apps" instead of re-downloading it but I can't find My Apps anywhere in the settings when I am in the Windows 8 app store app.
    Thanks for any help!
