Hello,
 
Trying to install WSL 2 with Ubuntu 20 on my Windows 365 Cloud PC always results in the error message:
 
"Installing, this may take a few minutes... WslRegisterDistribution failed with error: 0x80370102
Error: 0x80370102 The virtual machine could not be started because a required feature is not installed."
 
I tried the install both with wsl --install as well with the manual steps https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/wsl/install.

I have the same issue.
When running wsl -l -v, it show no installed distributions.

 

Just found this: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/windows-365-feature-requests/docker-desktop-and-or-wsl-not-su...

 

Obviously, it will not work. 

I spoke to a Microsoft support engineer:
WSL 2 (and Ubuntu) isn't supported with Windows 365 Cloud PCs.
