Solving environment: failed

Dear community, I'm totally new to QIIME2.
I read several posts, but could not find a solution to my issue, also I think because of my inexperience.
However, I've successfully installed miniconda and QIIME2 by https://data.qiime2.org/distro/core/qiime2-2022.8-py38-linux-conda.yml --no-check-certificate, after enabling wget by conda install -c menpo wget

I tried to create a QIIME2 environment but the following error pops up: (base) C:\Users\DELL>conda env create -n qiime2-2022.8 --file qiime2-2022.8-py38-linux-conda.yml

Hello Carlo,

Welcome to the forums! :qiime2:

I noticed this:

Are you running this on Windows?

Dear Colin, thanks for your quick reply. I'm running Miniconda on Windows 10

@Vito_Carlo_Alberto_C,

Unfortunately, there are QIIME2 dependencies that are not available for Windows, so as of now, there is no option to install natively on Windows. The good news is that WSL lets you install QIIME2 on your Windows machine fairly easily, try following the instructions found here.
