Windows 10 for testing purposes


A customer need to create some Windows 10 VMs in Azure in order to perform some tests.

They have no Windows 10 license with multi-tenant hosting neither a Visual Studio subscription.

They only need to create some VMs, perform the tests they need and pay for the VMs including the use of licenses.

How can they do?

Hi @Marius_Roma.


Do they have any office 365?
Client OS licenses have never been available as part of the VMs price in Azure only Server licenses.

Solution 1:
Get a dev/test subscription and run there Windows 10 VMs on Azure.

Solution 2:
Run Azure Virtual Desktop with Per user access pricing for external users


In azure calculator can help you estimate more accurate cost:
