    Hi @Luca-8019

    You are only entitled to use these images if you have the correct Azure Subscription as indicated in the article below:
    Use Windows client in Azure for dev/test scenarios

    Another way to use Client OS image is to use Windows Virtual Desktop as described on the article and video below:
    What is Windows Virtual Desktop?
