advanced rendering for AutoCAD

I am working on a scene where I am using an HDRI background and have a window being reflected on a polished stone wall.  Everything is working out good except for the  window reflection in the stone wall is not showing the background - how do I get it to do this?

Can you post part of the image with reflection you aren't getting? Maybe that way someone could help better :)

Thank you for the reply.  I have shut everything off (removed everything) from the scene and just let it do a small amount of passes to show the reflection I'm not getting.  This is using Path Tracer, and all 3 background channels (visible, reflected, refracted) are set to the HDRI image (the reflected and refracted automatically had defaulted to that so I left them).  As you can see in the window reflection on the black wall (the left one) the window is only reflecting the "sky" and not the background image.

***EDIT***

Ahh, just figured it out - if I remove the HDRI from background, and then set my Sky to HDRI image and select the file, then I'm getting the reflection as I should - and on the floor.  Still trying to all learn all of this :)

"Yes. We used to hide a little soft toy bear called Fret in our sets back in the day when we used photography. We then created a 3D version of Fret and included him in many of our renders. If you have a look at the images in my Ambus 2014 album, you…"

"Do you ever hide stuff in your scenes? I used to have my dog Joey in EVERY render. Sometimes an icon on a monitor or in a window reflection, or book cover."
