Hello! Someone recommended that I post this in here rather than just General.

are other WSL distributions working well?
i would make sure some regular distribution is functioning. You may need to go into the %LOCALAPPDATA% type folders and delete it all as I have found inconsistency in how the installer handles existing bits

I've installed the Ubuntu distro, and it seems to be working

thats good news. wsl -l shows both rancher-desktop and rancher-desktop-data? if you try rdctl shell can you get to the distro? you may want to manually scrub the backing VMDKs after an uninstall to make sure they are created fresh.
basically delete %LOCALAPPDATA%\rancher-desktop after doing the uninstall

Looks like rancher-desktop-data is not there
I'll try clearing it from local appdata and see if it makes any diff
