Why WSL is not upgrading even when necessary features are installed

Gorakh Nath Sharma 21 Reputation points

I had installed Ubuntu 20.04 distro installed over WSL 1. Now i want to upgrade it to WSL 2. I have also installed "Virtual Machine Platform" feature also. But when i try to set default version, it shows the error "Please enable the Virtual Machine Platform Windows feature and ensure virtualization is enabled in the BIOS." I have already enable Virtualization from BIOS as well. Where am I going wrong ?

    Try update the VMware to the latest version and restart your PC and see if the problem persist?
    Try disable VMware services and restart your PC and make sure they won't run (you may do it from the MSCONFIG) and check if the problem persist?
