Hello guys, i want to start learning and exploring Linux.. so i downloaded the kali linux terminal to windows 10 Microsoft store.
but when i launch the terminal, the terminal says :

Installing, this may take a few minutes...
WslRegisterDistribution failed with error: 0x8007019e
The Windows Subsystem for Linux optional component is not enabled. Please enable it and try again.
See https://aka.ms/wslinstall for details.
Press any key to continue...
so i checked how to solve this problem and they said to enter to control panel>programs>Turn Windows features on or off>check the box of "Windows Subsystem for Linux"
but  still the Linux terminal says the same.
do you have solution for this?
thank you

I would make a bootable disk of it and use that to boot linux, you can choose to install it as a second os or use the live version without installing, alternatively you could install it on a virtual machine.
That being said unless you want to start penetration testing, there are better versions to learn using linux

Docker containers would also be another option Setting up Kali Linux in Docker on Windows 10 [Micro$wipe]

Kali is a bit of a specialist linux distribution, really aimed at penetration testers.

If you would have known the correct process then the problems wouldn't happened.

How to install Kali Linux with Windows 10 Dual Boot (Laptop & PC)

Generally the Kali Linux Installation is easy. The most common error a user gets in the network section, this is because in laptops and desktops there are different WiFi adapter and use a direct LAN wire.

The second problem is, users can't make the right partitions and gets errors. So my suggestion is to always use a seperate Hard drive for Kali Linux installation and do not go manual. Select the "Guided- use entire disk" option and then select the "all files in one partition" option, it will automatically create the right ext and swap the partition for you.

If you want to install a new HDD or SSD on your PC or Laptop and don't know how to install the hard drive, you can check this article on how to install Kali Linux without loosing Windows 10 and old data. I found this useful because it has multiple options.
