Bought a Game on Xbox Live, Can't play it on another profile.

Titlte says it all really, I have 3 gamertags, due to my main one keeps messing up with me not being allowed to pay for xbox live, but that's another story anyway.

I bought GTA IV, A couple years back, and I redownloaded it last night, but as I don't have Xbox Live Gold on this account, I went on to my other account to play it, and it says I can't play it as I need to be signed in to the profile that bought the game.

Any way to get around this so I can play it on my other profile? Same console.

Hi! Sorry about your issue. I had the same problem wtih dead space on my other profile. You cannot play on the profile if the profile didnt buy the game/ game content. You can only play on that specific profile to play the game you downloaded. Im sorry for the issue. Have fun in GTA :) You can click here for more info to try a license transfer. support.xbox.com/.../download-content

Not sure why Fluttershy said you couldn't play the game... If you originally downloaded the game to a different console, you will just need to perform a license transfer. Once done, you will need to re-download the game in order to refresh the license, and then you should be able to play on any gamertag on the console. (www.xbox.com/drm or from your guide button)
