    Unhappy Windows 8.1 Store Account Login

    I have been using some free Microsoft games from the Windows Store with my W8.1 computer using my local account. Recently, the games stopped working. I thought their files on my computer might have gotten corrupted, so I uninstalled them and tried to reinstall the games from the Windows Store. As I expected, Windows Store wanted me to login using my Microsoft Account. I did, but then Windows tried to get me to change my computer from a local account to my Microsoft Account. I did not want to do that. When I declined to do so, I got kicked back to the Microsoft Store. When I again tried to install the game, I got sent back to the Account login merry-go-round. Does anyone know if Microsoft has changed its policies so that only folks whose computers use Microsoft Accounts can play free Microsoft games?

    Do you know if this problem also exists with Windows 8.0?

    I'm sorry, but I do not know whether this problem affects W8.0.
