I logged into another account (whose primary PS4 is not mine) and downloaded some games. I then saw that they are locked when I am logged in from my PSN account, so I bought those games from Playstation store on my account.

Because I had already downloaded them on the other account, cancelled the download. The problem is that they are still locked.

My internet is pretty slow and I don't want to have to redownload them again. Is there a way to play them without deleting and re-downloading them?

If you select download it should only download the license.

Like games that come with pre-order bonus, if you download them, ever noticed they are only a few KB downloads? This is because the items are already in the game, the download is just the license/activation.

So if you select to the-download it should only take two minutes at most to go threw your download then it'll finish.

    Also maybe try to "Restore Licenses" option in settings while logged in as the user who bought the game(s). Commented Dec 21, 2015 at 18:59
