@briantaintor Also, there is some confusion about the 'other' Remote Desktop apps, and even the RADC method.  These appear to work just fine with WVD testing, but the WVD Client is a different branch?  Also, the WVD Client branch is NOT in the Windows Store, correct?

@Robert Buckmaster


Correct, the Windows WVD client is not in the app store.

Message: AADSTS50020: User account '' from identity provider '' does not exist in tenant 'MS Azure Cloud' and cannot access the application 'fa4345a4-a730-4230-84a8-7d9651b86739'(Windows Virtual Desktop Client) in that tenant. The account needs to be added as an external user in the tenant first. Sign out and sign in again with a different Azure Active Directory user account. 

@tom-_1777 WVD only supports subscribing with an OrgID. It does not support personal Microsoft accounts.
