Does anyone know if there is a way to install LinuxCNC on a Windows 10 computer using Windows Subsystem for Linux? Any help with this would be great. I have to run it from my work laptop, and would hate to have to set up a dual boot situation. I've already read that a virtual machine would not work so this would be the next best option.

What about using something like this to convert windows into a RTOS?

Yes, in professional world you can have rt-windows since many years. Just insert more coins. And linuxcnc is based on "his" linux-rt api.

It might be "possible" but likely isn't practical.

I know what you want to do, my CNC table runs windows 10 using the Linux subsystem connecting to a single board computer running Debian controlling my CNC Plasma Table. Motion control using servos is the only thing I can seem to think realtime has to do with this situation besides being able to talk to the servo encoders & allow you to know where the torch is at on the screen. Mach 3 did all of this besides talking to servo encoders. Yea Mach 3 might not be as good only in certain situations. I've ran Mach3 for 6 years never a single hiccup, but windows 10 going universal is where it's at. You will never sell a Linux based cnc machine to a die-hard windows user with the windows 10 subsystem for Linux It keeps that market open for the people that either old and doesn't want to learn a new OS or a different kernel but the Linux product will sell even more.

This is my take on the OP question.
I think the OP wants to Linuxcnc locally using the Linux subsystem on the windows machine.
What you are suggesting displaying the Linuxcnc GUI from a remote machine on a local machine.

A dual boot is the simpler the way as it appears the OP has only a single machine.

Correction, that is Linux subsystem for Windows.
There is so much stuff blatantly taken from Linux and implemented in Windows that they could not hide it anymore, hence the above.
This is going on since win2K that had netwoking bolted on from Linux.
And Microsoft still pays a lot of money to Nowel for the right to do so.

Another solution is to install xrdp on your Linuxcnc box and use Windows 10 Remote desktop RDP to remote into it. You will need Win10 Pro to do this.

Ironic considering . Didn't Windows / Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer at one time say Linux was a cancer ?
