Windows Host Application [SOLVED]

Hello, and thank you Gnif for Looking Glass.

I have a Windows KVM set up according to the Arch Linux wiki. I have Looking Glass (B1) installed, and the Windows host application on my Windows VM. I went through this procedure (https://looking-glass.hostfission.com/wiki/index.php?title=Windows_Host_Application) to have it auto-start on login (I have W10 set to auto-login).

When I run the Looking Glass client in Linux, it never receives anything from the host in the VM.
How do I tell if the Looking Glass host in the VM is running? Can it be run manually? Do I have to remove the Spice viewer from the VM in order to get this going?

Thanks!

Also, when I double-click the looking-glass application in Windows 10 in the VM, it asks for admin privileges, and then nothing happens. No terminal, nothing.

Ok, now I feel dumb. I did not remove the QXL video device. After I removed that, Looking-Glass worked fine. Closing this.
