Cannot install qiime2 on windows 10

Dear all,

I am using Miniconda to install qiime2. I have successfully updated conda and also installed wget. But could not install qiime2. The code is attached. Thank you for your help.

Best wishes,

Hello @luckystar. You can’t install QIIME 2 natively on Windows. You’ll need to use a virtual machine or the Linux subsystem for Windows.

Thank you very much @Oddant1
