Hi, since WSL has problems running any Qt program: 
https://github.com/microsoft/WSL/issues/3023 also see 
I think prio #1 should be getting libQt6Core.so.6 working in WSL.
(Old post so it's about Qt5, but it applies equally well to Qt6. Note: 
online installing Qt 5.15.2 runs fine on WSL, but for example WSL Ubuntu 
20.04 distro's Qt (5.9.x I think) does not)
