I'm trying to install Rancher Desktop Version: 1.7.0 in windows 11 this has WSL-2 enabled and running without problems. When I install Rancher Desktop in windows the app does start but reports a networking issue:
The application cannot reach the general internet for updated kubernetes versions and other components, but can still operate.
Error: ENOENT: no such file or directory, open '\\wsl$\rancher-desktop-data\etc\hosts'
The images tab reports:
Waiting for image manager to be ready
wsl version shows:
WSL version:
Kernel version:
WSLg version: 1.0.49
MSRDC version: 1.2.3770
Direct3D version: 1.608.2-61064218
DXCore version:
Windows version: 10.0.22623.1325
I would appreciate any pointers on how best to debug this issue

I would try the #rancher-desktop group. rancher-setup is related to the cluster management software Rancher Manager.
