I recently setup a win 10 laptop for one of my kids and I have my ms account on there but a non ms user account for my child... I managed to install Minion Rush(a game they enjoy) through the app store onto my child's profile with little hassle.  I believe I had to just approve of the installation with my password.


but now I'm trying to do the same for another child on a win 8.1 laptop and it's not going the same way.  It wants me to connect my account, as in set that account up as if it's me or something.  I'm just confused.  Of course it's late and I'm tired so I'm not really on top of it all but...  I'd like to be able to put the apps on my child's account without it thinking it's my account or something.
If all that makes sense.  I may try to mess with it more tomorrow but thought I'd post here in case I'm missing something easy and to get thoughts I can come look at in the morning.  :)
