    when you were going through the install of the game, did it prompt you to install it for yourself or for all users on the PC? .. I don't use the apps so I'm not for sure if it even does this but it was worth suggesting considering other programs do ask this, including games, if you want to install it for yourself or all users.

    from what i have been reading, you need to install it on the other account as well according to Microsoft's topic about sharing Windows 8.1 apps with multiple users.
