In short: Your shadow is on something called a “Virtual Computer”. This is for a number of reasons, and most cloud computing companies are forced to use them. If the launcher doesn’t allow VMs (Virtual Machines), there isnt really a way around it to my knowledge. I’ve not encountered anything like this, though.

Hey Monthybread!

It just means that you would not be able to use Shadow PC with that specific launcher that you’re using. After all, Shadow PC is a virtual machine. Not only Shadow PC has this problem, but other cloud gaming services come across this as well. It’s probably just a privacy/security protective matter on the launchers end!
