Can't Cast to Developer Application

Level 2

I'm in the developer application, and I have the Quest Pro Connected to my PC via a USB-C data cable. When I try to cast to the computer is get the error message copied below. I also see a connection error message pop up on the headset simultaneously as the error (copied below) shows up on my PC. So they are somewhat connected. BTW, I seem to have the same issue with my Quest 2. 

Both the headset and the computer are on the same network. As far as I can tell, both are on the same Facebook Account. I did set up a Horizon account, and I don't know if an issue, but the Horizon account is under my Facebook account ID. 

I can "cast" at low resolution on my iPhone, but I want to get to the developer image cast on my PC. 

I have tried resetting the headset and still have the same problem. The headset software shows as being up to date. I tried following the cryptic instructions in the error message, but maybe I am missing something.
