VMWare VMRC login

on
VMWare ESXi 6.5. Running VMRC from a win10 machine vmrc is asking for a login. It is populating the username "clone". How do I stop this or log it in?
When I run vmrc from another win10 machine there is no problem. I have re-installed VMRC several times now.

Is there a reason you have installed VMRC as opposed to using HTML5 client for access?

There is a VM (Its a windows 10 VM running BlueIris) we monitor with live cameras for security. HTML stalls out after a time (time seems to vary) and has to be refreshed to view live video again. When I'm using VMRC the video always stays "live"
Other than that I do usually use HTML when accessing other vm machines for maintenance. Sometimes RDP.
I have used this in the past with good results. I had to replace the HDD on the PC I'm using for this job. Re-installed windows 10. Installed VMRC, now it always presents a login dialog with user populated as clone.
My searching so far on the VMWare site and the general internet has not yielded anything related to this.

Did someone save user credentials previously using VMRC ?

No, I'm the only user. It works on other PC's for me accessing without prompting so it seems to be odd behavior to this PC.

That's correct it normally launches and assumes a permissions.

Also, if I go to another Win10 PC. Log into esxi and launch remote console, it pops right up with no issues.

If you login as a different user, the same issue ?

or just for this user profile ?

That worked perfectly!!
I'm going into AD and delete this user and create a new user!

Don't know why I didn't think of that!

Thanks!
