Can't connect to Azure Win 8.1 Enterprise virtual computer via RDP with Microsoft Account but Local Account RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello Community,

    I have Problems to connect to a virtual Computer on Windows Azure. But only when I host a Windows 8.1 Enterprise Computer in Azure. When I use a Windows Server 2012 R2 virtual Computer I can connect without Problems. Also when I use a Local Account on my Windows 8.1 Enterprise Laptop at home with which I want to connect to the virtual computer, I can connect to the machine. But when I use a Microsoft Account on my Laptop it fails with "Authentification failure"

    I hope anybody can help me. Thanks in advance :)

  • I have the same problem. The account you enter in the Setup won't connect successfully.
