Doesn't that mean that qt5 wasn't installed at all? Logical, the basic
WSL version only has commandline support.

You will need another program that translates any graphical output to
the Windows screen. When I tried it, there were two of them playing a
major role, and I installed one of them (I will look it up if you wish).
So you will have to start the X Screen program first, and then the
graphical software from the WSL.
After installing from within the commandline environment some of the
Linux software I needed, amongst others Gambas, I could successfully
start Gambas and Gambas applications.
The only glitch was that this WSL doesn't support a file system on a
shared Samba drive, that was the main show stopper for me.
