WSL2 stopped working. When, I do a new installation of linux distro, it throws the following error on click of the launch button:
Installing, this may take a few minutes... WslRegisterDistribution failed with error: 0x80070003 Error: 0x80070003 The system cannot find the path specified. Press any key to continue...
wsl --help command works fine
wsl -l command and other wsl commands throw the following error
The system cannot find the path specified.
I was getting the same issue and it was due to my bad attempt at deleting the installed Distro. If yours is the same case, this should be pretty easy to fix, use the
wsl --unregister <DISTRO_NAME> which in my case was debian so
wsl --unregister debian unregistered the old path for the Debian executable and then I installed Debian again. This worked for my personal case but I thought it might help someone on the internet.
Check if you have any
.wslconfig inside your profile in
C:\Users folder and delete it! I finally got it working
