Cannot Login To Windows from Remote Desktop on Mac OS

Mark 21 Reputation points

I am running into an issue with a pc we have in our studio that I am trying to connect to using Microsoft Remote Desktop app on a Mac.
(Mac OS 11.4; MRD v10.6.7; (1896) Windows 10 pro 2004 19041.1052)
I am using Remote Desktop to connect to a pc from my MacBook Pro, both in the studio and from home, using a Azure AD login credentials. I am able to establish a connection using the Azure AD email address and password, however, once the pc window is showing on my Mac, I am stuck at the login window. The message on the screen is "The user name or password is incorrect, try again" If i re enter the Azure e-mail address and password again i get the same message. If i use the local/username id and password, i get a message saying that i cannot use that id and to enter my school or work e-mail instead. I have ran through as many articles as i could find on how to allow RDP settings and even edited the RDC text file to include enablecredsspsupport:i:0. I am able to make a connection using a 3rd party Remote Desktop application called JumpDesktop, however, I really want to set this up using MDC so other users in my studio can connect to the computer and I don't need to buy a ton of licenses for the 3rd party app to allow it.
Any thoughts on why I am getting stoped at the login screen even though I am entering valid credentials would be much appreciated.
Thank you.
