Brian, This has gotten split into 2 threads. Could you possibly please
merge them?

I'll split hairs for clarity:  You used the NVDA installer to create a
portable version which, as you noted, is not installed because no registry
entries are made.  All of the bits and bobs NVDA needs to use are unpacked
into the folder of your choosing (which can be on the system drive, but that
still doesn't make it installed) and everything it needs to run is contained

I honestly have no idea why you'd get any UIA warning for NVDA, portable or
installed, unless you were requesting that it be active on the login screen,
and that's supported under Windows unless some specialty blocking has been
imposed by your IT department.

But this could also be a complication of VDI, which I don't know enough
about to comment about further.

I would try actually installing if you have that option to see if that makes
any difference.
