    Hi, please validate some settings. You need to make sure RemoteFX is enabled, and that on the remote VM that settings; Do not allow supported Plug and Play device redirection must be Disabled.

    On your local computer:

    Use gpedit

    Local Computer Policy -> Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Remote Desktop Services -> Remote Desktop Connection Client -> RemoteFX USB Device Redirection -> Allow RDP redirection of other supported RemoteFX USB devices from this computer

    On the remote host:

    Computer Configuration\Policies\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Remote Desktop Services\Remote Desktop Session Host\Device and Resource Redirection
    Do not allow supported Plug and Play device redirection >> Disabled.

    If the local GPO is working, you should in the remote desktop client Other Supported RemoteFX USB Devices >> USB Input Device XXXXXXX.
