Games on demand problem

I have purchased the games on demand on my xbox 360. They are installed on my 250gb HDD. They seem to work with any account without having to sign into my main account. I took the xbox and hdd to my friends house and its asking me to do a license transfer. Why is it asking me to do this when its still on the same xbox and also same HDD? Why does MS have to over complicate things for stuff i have bought and own?

It's to stop theft, ie you buy it then put it on your friends HDD so they don't have to pay for the full game on their account.

So, next question is - did you purchase this item on THIS console, or on another one and transfer it over?

And, if so, were you connected to XBL while at your friend's house, or were you playing offline?

All items where purchased on this console. No licenses have been transferred as this is the original console that bought the items. Also ive tried the console online and offline and it states i do not own the licenses even though its my xbox and hdd which the console has the licenses to

So you only get issues at your friend's house? Are all your accounts able to play the content online and offline at your house?

In your original post, you said the console is telling you to do a license transfer. What exactly does this error message say? When does it show this message?
