Using unattended bot on Virtual Machine that has same user credentials as my desktop

Hi everyone,

We have obtained a license for the UiPath Studio, several attended bots and 1 unattended bot.
I want to install the unattended bot on my virtual desktop, which has the same Windows username and password as my own desktop. It basically is a 100% copy: it has the same programs and files on it as my own pc.

The machine name, however, is different.

However, I suspect that this is causing some issues in regard to licensing.
I want to do this:

On my own pc I want to install the UiPath Studio and an Attended robot for testing purposes.
On my virtual desktop I want to install an Unattended robot, so I can run processes without being bothered by it.

However, when I want to activate the bot on the virtual machine, it says that "The floating robot’s session is already active on “desktop machine”.

There is a connection, but the UiPath Assistent says that it is unlicensed.
Does anyone know if there is a way to achieve what I have intended?
