Visual Studio for QIIME2 (Windows 11/ Linux)

Hello to everybody!
I'm very new in bioinformatis and I'm starting now to use QIIME2.
I've already installed QIIME 2 on my pc (Windows 11) through the installation of WSL, than installing Miniconda and after that I installed QIIME2.
Now I'm starting to learn the programm and all of its features, but I was wondering if I can install Visual Studio to make my experience easier (my supervisor showed to me that he always use QIIME2 through Visual Studio but I searched for download it and I didn't find anything for the last version of QIIME2. Maybe he use a previous version of the programme that it's compatible with Visual Studio.)
So, my question for you is this, is there a way to install a Virtual Machine that could help me starting with QIIME2? I think that it's very hard to run all the command programming, it could be helpful for me a virtual machine.
Thanks you for the space

I tried to install q2studio through QIIME 2 Studio (q2studio) — QIIME 2 2022.8.3 documentation, but at when I was installing it it was showed an error, I'll attach here the txt that is generated from:

Thanks you very much, hope that someone could help me

Hello @Giuseppe_Galiano,
q2-studio is no longer being maintained. If you would like user interface check out Galaxy: q2Galaxy - Galaxy Community Hub.

if you want a virtual machine we now provide qiime2 as a docker build: Installing QIIME 2 using a Virtual Machine — QIIME 2 2022.8.3 documentation

Lastly, I believe to use VS code and qiime2 that you would be using the Artifact API. Here is a tutorial for using that: Artifact API — QIIME 2 2022.8.3 documentation

Hope that helps, Let me know if you have any questions
