Please use the following bug reporting template to help produce actionable and reproducible issues:

  • A brief description: bash.exe hangs and never finishes
  • Expected results: A workable "Bash on Ubuntu on Windows"
  • Actual results (with terminal output if applicable): An unusable "Bash on Ubuntu on Windows" (empty, black window) and a never finished bash.exe
  • Your Windows build number: 14393
  • Steps / commands required to reproduce the error: just install WSL and run bash.exe
  • Strace of the failing command
  • Required packages and commands to install

See our contributing instructions for assistance.

I am using the build 14393 and I encountered two problems:

  1. When I switched to developer mode, I got the error "Developer mode package failed to install. Error code 0x80004005".
    I have tried
    http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-update/error-0x80004005-window-10-update-failure/156adfb8-e7e1-46fa-b5c6-cbd5dcfebbb9
    http://forums.hololens.com/discussion/1530/fix-enabling-windows-10-developer-mode-get-error-code-0x80004005-after-build-14383
    Neither worked.
  2. I turned on "Windows subsystem for Linux" via "Control Panel -> Programs -> Turn Windows features on or off" and switched to developer mode (with that error in problem 1). I can successfully run the program bash.exe and get the "Bash on Ubuntu on Windows". However, bash.exe hanged for more than 1 hour after I entered my password and it showed "the password is updated successfully". It never finished and when I clicked "Bash onUbuntu on Windows" it just gave me an empty window. When I tried to run "lxrun /uninstall /full" to uninstall it and installed it again. It just showed uninstalling and never finished again.

How can I solve these? My device is SP4 i7/16GB/512GB.
Thanks.

Do you by chance have multiple NT page files on your system?

Hi benhillis,

I don't quite understand what is "NT page files" and how can I know whether I have multiple NT page files.
After uninstalling and installing WSL for several times, I am able to uninstall Bash by using "lxrun /uninstall /full". Howerver, I try to run bash again and it still hangs after showing "passwd: password updated successfully" (it already takes more than 1 hour).

The setting is "Automatically manage paging file size for all drives".
And only in C: there are paging files. (but it does not show whether there is only 1 or not).
Thanks.

Do you happen to have Kaspersky Internet Security or another Third Party firewall installed? I've seen instances like #705 where this can cause issues.

Thank you, benhillis.
You are correct.
I have tried to disable Kaspersky, but Bash still did not work.
Following the comment in #705, when I "closed" Kaspersky, it works!

Thanks for confirming. Does anybody have a contact with Kaspersky so we can sync up with them and figure out why they are blocking our pico processes?

I'm having a different problem, no matter what I try it always hangs on "extracting filesystem.." for eternity. Anyone have any ideas?

Not using Kapersky, using Avast - I have it disabled but that's not working either.

Thanks in advance

A new update from Kaspersky, it seems we've stumbled upon a bug in their 2017 version which they'll resolve asap so I guess we just have to be a bit patient.

I have done this twice now. It hung for hours on "Extracting filesystem, this will take a few minutes..." Without stopping it, I started a new (admin) command window and typed "bash". This told me to "Please create a default UNIX user account by running lxrun.exe /setdefaultuser. I did this, and it set the password and updated it successfully. Then, I could launch bash from the start menu or from the taskbar and it basically worked fine (as far as I could tell). So, yes, the installer can hang and this a bug, and I'm hoping they will fix this soon, but, nevertheless, in my experience you can get going with bash on Windows 10 anyway.

Just a side information about Antivirus like Kaspersky: I've had that problem often, that Kaspersky (and other AVs) are blocking something and don't stop blocking even though they're deactivated.
If you ever run into issues with AVs, stop or uninstall them completely to verify that it's or it's not the AV.

There is a process manager called LsxxManager which controls Bash. I too have Kaspersky, and when disabling the AV, the Bash command was still a blank window. Recycling this service fixed Bash. You can find it under the Services tab in Task Manager.

I was also seeing problems with bash and Kaspersky (KIS 2016 in this case); after querying the new password, bash fell silent; closing the window and restarting bash didn't help either.

Closing Kaspersky (KIS 2016) I found that I could run bash successfully, so it seems Kaspersky is indeed to blame.

The good news: Next thing I did was to close bash, restart KIS, and try again, just for giggles -- and now it appears to work just fine, even with Kaspersky running.

Edit: You know what -- scratch that. Possibly after doing something trivially wrong (tried to mv a directory while it was opened by Windows Explorer) the Blocked Bash is back with a vengeance: Now it won't even run with KIS shut down.

I guess for now I'm back to VirtualBox.

@erichiller hm, my lockup was happening inside of an X terminal running tmux, but I'm also on yakkety, so idk what the problem could be. I'll see if it continues to happen without running tmux.

On non-system disk G: mv foo/ bar hangs, but mv foo bar doesn't!
AV uninstalled, Windows Defender's real time and cloud based protections are off, paging file is system managed on C: and None on G:.
Only system reboot helps, relaunching bash or sing out/in doesn't work, stopping LxssManager service takes forever.

Seeing same issue a couple people were having above.

Cannot mv mydir/ newdir, you have to do a mv mydir newdir without the slash. Otherwise I get some garbled characters mixed in with the directory names during the move, so fails.

Also, I attempted to move a directory structure from one location to another and bash just hung. I cannot launch any new bash shells, they all just hang. After killing off all bash.exe, still hangs. Guessing I have to reboot to get it working again.

This system is cool, but it doesn't seem to be ready for prime time if a basic mv operation doesn't even work. Gonna power up my real VM so I can get something done. I'll try back in a few months.

If it hangs after using mv then you probably did hit this bug. #765

This only happens on Anniversary Update, it was already fixed on Insider builds.

Disabling page files in multiple partitions fixed the issue for me. At least there is no need of reinstalling the subsystem. Just disable page files in multiple partitions.

@adrianchifor - Thanks for your post. Can you give an example of what you put in .bashrc that contained ~, which hosed your bash? On Insider build 15046, I added some simple shell scripts to .bashrc with a path containing ~ and it worked fine.

@briglx Switch to insiders or wait until the April release of CU. We're already at the "release preview" stage for CU (timebomb and evaluation text have been removed).

Build 1703 means that the final fork from the development branch was made in March. We're fast-approaching the next release (likely some time in April, going by the AU release schedule (1607 means July 2016, RTM in August with selected rollouts, and general availability by September iirc).

I have been using Ubuntu for Windows on Windows 10 for nearly a year. Today, I tried to mv a directory and the command hung. I exited the bash window and tried restarting, but never get a bash prompt. Also running "bash" directly from a Windows command window hangs indefinitely. I have rebooted Windows, closed all other applications, disabled Windows Defender; I have also tried uninistalling with "lxrun /uninstall", both with and without the "/full" flag, but after confirming the uninstall, the command thinks for a few seconds and reports "Error: 0x80080005". I found this issue here but it does not really seem relevant. Any suggestions on next steps?

Starting having this behavior as well.

Win10 Home
Version 1803
OS Build 17134.1

I launch bash with "Bash on Ubuntu on Windows" shortcut. CLI window launches but hangs with a title "Select bash on Windows". Blank cli, no bash prompt, cannot close the window. I can open another instance and bash prompt will show successfully. But cannot close or terminate the first window.

After a system restart then it'll work on launch.

Should've saved a screenshot but will amend this comment when it happens again.
