[WSL] calling .so functions from a Win10 DLL or process RRS feed

  • Question

  • Microsoft experts-

    When using WSL, is it possible to call Linux .so (shared library) functions from a Win10 DLL ?  If not, what is the recommended way to communicate between a Win10 process and Linux .so libs ?  Could we run a Linux "function call handler" process with which the Win10 process communicates ?

  • You have asked in the wrong forum. This forum is for questions and discussions about the TechNet Wiki. I will move this question to a more appropriate forum.

    Also, there might be information you use linked on this page:

  • Richard-

    Thanks for your reply.  To what forum should the question be posted ?

    I was already told to move it here as follows:


    but the "forum" link in that reply is just a search page.  Also I posted a question here:


    but that one is still waiting for the moderator (Rich Turner).

    So far I can't find any tech / developer forum, WSL related or otherwise, to accept my question.

  • OK, I could not find a forum for this question (I think I followed some the same rabbit holes you did), so I will move it to a forum where others may have ideas. Otherwise, you may post a question to one of the recent blog posts linked on the page I linked above. Some of the discussions are current and addressed by Microsoft developers.
