Unable to play Xbox Store purchase on separate account but SAME CONSOLE

Since the new Xbox OS update I am unable to play Xbox Games purchased under a different account on the same console. My friend and I share an Xbox. We frequently play together but also occasionally separately. We could purchase titles from the Xbox store and each play them from our respective accounts. It appears that functionality has now been removed. This effectively means that if my friend and I wish to play a game on both accounts we have to purchase them on disc and not from the store as usual. As such, I am extremely disappointed by this new update.

Have you set the console to your "home" console? I have online games which I have purchased and my son can play them on his gamertag.  He's playing BlackOpps 3 which I purchased right now.

yes, try and set it as home Console and retry playing the game, it suppose to work that way because i also encounter the error but now finally working fine for me after setting it as home console.
