I managed to configure Google Chromecast with Google TV (4K) version for school usage by enabling Cast Moderator.
The device works perfectly when casting from Google Chromebook-managed devices that belong to the school.
When I try to cast from the Google Chrome browser on a Windows machine, I get the error message "the device can't be found.
I'm using the same wifi network on both devices (Chromecast and laptop).
All the settings are done on the admin console.
The same user tested on Chromebook is used in Windows machine with a signed-in profile (Google chrome profile).
1st Question: How to solve this issue?
2nd Question: Is it necessary to enrol the windows laptop into Google Workspace for Education to have the casting working?

Thanks for posting to the Chromecast Community forum! It's not necessary to enroll the Windows laptop into Google Workspace for Education, as long as it meets the requirements to cast from Chrome, then it should be good to go. Let's check this further.
Quick questions: what Operating System (OS) do you use? Is the Google Chrome browser version updated?
