steam, cant run family shared games

A Forum Thread for Steam

READ : i own two steam accounts a main account and a backup account, since i have installed games from the other account i wanted to play one of them, but, something weird happened, instead of telling me that i must get permission from the owner, nothing happened. Basically, when i click play nothing happens, absolutely nothing, not even a ''preparing to launch'' screen.
Does anybody know why do i seem to encounter this problem? i already tried restarting pc/steam. NOTICE : REINSTALLING IS NOT A SOLUTION

    Sign into the other account and make sure that your other account is still listed as a shared account. Sometimes you have to remove and re-add.
