Register Windows 365 Images in Azure

I am currently deploying Windows 365 and want to use a custom image. Firstly, I used the Azure Marketplace Windows 11 22h2 enterprise image. The performance was terrible. I checked again, but I couldn’t find it. I got a hint that you must register the Windows 365 Cloud PC images in your Azure environment. This is a quick short blog about that.

Azure Portal

Firstly, you need to add the images to your Azure Marketplace. You can do so by using this link:

https://azuremarketplace.microsoft.com/en-US/marketplace/apps/microsoftwindowsdesktop.windows-ent-cpc

After you click on the link you will see this page:

You can see the software plans here and after that, you can click on continue:

Next, you can use the offerings to deploy a VM in Azure to create a custom image for your Windows 365 machines:

When you create a new VM via the Azure Portal & Marketplace, you can also see the offering there:

Powershell

You can also get the Windows 365 Image SKUs via Powershell. I use this to be able to create a pipeline to build the image for me. I will share on this subject later.

Firstly, log on to Azure using:

Connect-AzAccount

After that use this code to view the SKUs:

Get-AzVMImageSku -Location westeurope -PublisherName MicrosoftWindowsDesktop -Offer windows-ent-cpc | Select Skus

These are the SKUs available:
