Hi,
I'm luca112358. I'm from France, I'm only 15 years old. I'd like to port a bluestacks/others (such as Memu) alternative to easily run android on Windows.
What is WSL??? WSL is the abreviation for "Windows Subsystem for Linux". Sometimes wrongly called "Bash on windows", WSL is a compatibility layer for running Linux binary executables (in ELF format) natively on Windows 10.
The most amazing thing is that it provides a Linux-compatible kernel interface with NO linux kernel code. (see: https://doc.ubuntu-fr.org/wsl and https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/wsl/install-win10 for more infos)
It is ways faster than virtualization, that's why my project will be using it. I've successfully runned android using WSL, but I have no idea of how I can open the android GUI. I think I should try to code a virtual screen but I'm not sure.
I will be spending all my free time in this project. Unfortunatly with my exams comming I won't have so much time.
Thanks in advance for your help,
Have a nice day!!!

U tried X-Server displays? I'm not sure if it works on Andorid.

PS- If you search around the net deep enough there are quite a few Android WSL packages. You might be able to kang some stuff from them. I'll upload mine somewhere soon and I'll give MS an eMail about tryna get Android into the Store when a GUI-supported WSL gets released publicly.
