Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: How do I add computers to WVD Assist?

A: Under normal circumstances session hosts will automatically populate. However, if you turn off API usage you may manually type in the hostname of each host in the configuration panel. As long as you are running WVD assist from within one of the session hosts you will still be able to assist users and connect to the session hosts.

Q: Why can’t I see any users in the table?

A: There are a few reasons why you may not see users, first, make sure you have entered the tenant name and host name correctly in the configuration panel, also make sure that you have entered your Microsoft account info correctly. If you are using this method, make sure that the “Use WVD” button is pressed. If you are not using your Microsoft account, you must be on the same network as the VMs, and make sure that you have entered each hostname into the “Host” table in the configuration page.
