Hi Just a small question

I have a doubt regarding WVD license. Suppose I want to deploy a desktop application group or a remote app group. is the license is compulsory?

Let's assume

I deploy a WVD with Windows 10 Enterprise multi-session or Windows 10 Enterprise I should have - Microsoft 365 E3, E5, A3, A5, F1, Business
Windows E3, E5, A3, A5?????????????

I deploy a WVD with Windows 7 Enterprise I should have Microsoft 365 E3, E5, A3, A5, F1, Business
Windows E3, E5, A3, A5?????????

I deploy a WVD Windows Server 2012 R2, 2016, 2019 I should have RDS Client Access License (CAL) with Software Assurance???????????

@gadmin285 Yes, see attached screenshot.

Hey@Justin Coffey  Thank you very much :) Why I am confused is user's are able to access the WVD without a license but getting an RDS CAL no license error. No it's clear.

I have one more doubt. Suppose one user is using Windows Virtual Desktop with windows server. So, this user must have an R CAL license? what about if we add a second user? second user also should have new license? How different is it with Windows 10 multi session? @Justin Coffey
