    Unable to enable WSL


    Hi,


    I'm trying to enable WSL on my Laptop using following documentation:

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/wsl/install-win10


    when I enter the command cmd admin mode:


    dism.exe /online /enable-feature /featurename:Microsoft-Windows-Subsystem-Linux /all /norestart



    Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool

    Version: 10.0.17763.771



    Image Version: 10.0.17763.1158



    Enabling features

    [==========================100.0%==========================]



    Error: 14081



    The referenced assembly could not be found.



    The DISM log file can be found at C:\WINDOWS\Logs\DISM\dism.log



    When I try to enable the feature trough the GUI I get the same error message.


    In tthe logs I can see following errors:

    WIN 10, version 1809 OS Build 1763.1158


    I tried to run: DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth But the issue remained.


    Did anybody experience this problem or know how to fix this?


    Thanks

    :)

    0x8000000d Ubuntu installation fails with error 0x8000000d installed using the Microsoft Store application with WSL enabled

    Although WSL was already enabled and I had rebooted, I also received this error when trying to run Ubuntu for the first time. I resolved it by running the enable step again. Open PowerShell as Administrator, and run:

  3. WSL unable to perform DNS lookup

    Hi my name is Ross, I'm an independent advisor. I'd be happy to help with your issue.

    Try following the steps in this article (Section - Bash loses network connectivity once connected to a VPN) to modify your resolv.conf file and manually add your correct DNS settings.

    If you don't know the correct settings then you can just use 1.1.1.1 or 8.8.8.8

    Ross

  4. Unable to enable WSL

    WSL in windows Store

    Actually, this is a consumer-oriented forum for general Windows 10 questions.

    As WSL concerns mostly developers and Enterprise, I suggest asking there.
