WSL SDK for .NET Standard/.NET Core

NuGet version (Wslhub.Sdk)

This project contains a WSL API wrapper for Windows developers who wants to integrate WSL features into existing Windows applications. You can enumerate, query, executing WSL commands via C# classes.

How to use

You will need the below items to use the WSL APIs.

  • Add an application manifest which describes your application is compatible with the Windows 10 (GUID: 8e0f7a12-bfb3-4fe8-b9a5-48fd50a15a9a) and the requestedExecutionLevel tag with asInvoker level.
  • Place the code Wsl.InitializeSecurityModel() at the top of your application's Main() method.


Due to the limitation of COM security model requirements of WSL APIs, you can not run this SDK within the Visual Studio Test Explorer or LINQPAD.

Code Example

using Wslhub.Sdk;

// Place the code `Wsl.InitializeSecurityModel()` at the top of your application's `Main()` method.

// Assert WSL installation status

// Enumerate distro list
var distros = Wsl.GetDistroListFromRegistry();

// Query distro informations
var queryResults = Wsl.GetDistroQueryResult();

// Run a command
var result = Wsl.RunWslCommand(distroName, "cat /etc/passwd");

Upcoming Features

  • Aware default distro
  • Executing WSL commands via C# API (supporting more longer CLOBs)
