When I launch Ubuntu, I receive the following error:
The WSL optional component is not enabled. Please enable it and try again. See https://aka.ms/wslinstall for details. Error: 0x8007007e Press any key to continue...
However, when I check features in PowerShell using
Get-WindowsOptionalFeature -Online, I see the following:
FeatureName : Microsoft-Windows-Subsystem-Linux State : Enabled
Would appreciate any assistance.
After searching through this thread https://github.com/Microsoft/WSL/issues/2316 I decided to try disabling WSL, rebooting, Enabling WSL, rebooting and launching Ubuntu seems to have solved the problem. Seemingly due to a bug with how dependencies are handled when the application is installed from the Windows store.
