@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?

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