Can I play on-demand games on the account I DIDN'T download it on?

I've re-downloaded a game (due to the help of someone) and the account I downloaded it on doesn't have gold (getting it tomorrow for birthday) But I really want to play it now w/ my account I have gold on (back up runs out tomorrow) but I can't play it on that account. Is there any way I can play it on that account? It says when I launch it can't launch game. When I load it up on the account I did download it on and then switch accounts it says That I must play on an account that has the game. Help?

Happy birthday. :-)


This possible on the console to which the game was initially downloaded. On that console, any user can play the game.

On any other console, only the profile that bought the game can play (and only whilst signed into Live).
