State Tool in Mingw or WSL2 Linux

Has anyone used State Tool under Mingw or Windows WSL2 Ubuntu ? Alternatively, an State Tool include a zsh or bash environment for ActiveState languages?
Thank you,
Wil B.

For what it’s worth, I use the state tool under WSL1 Ubuntu regularly without issues. My need for WSL1 versus 2 is unrelated to the state tool, but I would expect it to work in that environment as well.

Thank you, gboyce.
That remains very encouraging. I will get the State Tool going in WSL2 after an upgrade to Windows 2. If it goes well I will try to setup Windows Komodo remote connection to the Active State Project in Ubuntu.

Motivation : I spend alot of time in State Tool Projects fumbling through CMD.exe commands and prefer a better shell. I’m unsure about PowerShell compatibility with the State Tool, one post indicated that State Tool Perl Projects must activate from CMD.exe.

It worked the first time as you said. I only had to update the ActiveState Project to include Linux.
Thanks for the encouragement. It’s nice when tools work as or better than expected.

Have you tried Komodo and a WSL GUI or Desktop manager? I recently upgraded to Windows 11 and will try Komodo under WSL2 there.
