Unsolved: Power BI freezes in a Windows Azure VM when connecting RDP from Linux using Remmina.


  • Azure Windows 11 VM or
  • Azure Windows 10 VM
  • Linux Ubuntu with Wayland or X11
  • Remmina to RDP from Linux to Azure VM

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Connect RDP from Linux to Azure VM with Remmina
  2. Open a Power BI report
  3. Enable Pause visuals
  4. Move to another application outside of Remmina
  5. Go back to Remmina
  6. Power BI is frozen.
  7. The mouse works: if you click on Windows time/date, if you click Microsoft Edge (if pinned on the bar) but you cannot see the window that opened, if you click on the Windows 11 logo or search (but they won’t open). You can click on Powershell (if pinned on the bar) and it opens where you can kill the Power BI process.

Things I tried:

  • I thought it was a Windows 11
