It seems to work great and was a lot easier than previous methods I've tried so I ended up putting together a guide on what I did to help other people who may be interested. You can view it here: https://reusablesec.blogspot.com/2019/08/installing-john-ripper-on-microsofts.html Note: This was done with Windows 10 Pro, build 1809. I've been told that the preview version of WSLv2 provides faster performance for applications, but installing WSLv2 requires significantly more effort so I don't know if I'll get around to trying that out. If anyone else has success with getting WSLv2 to run I'd be interested in hearing about it. Cheers, Matt
