Hi Arash,
 
Thank you very much for the suggestion. That looks to me like an expert-workaround that would exceed my (rudimentally existent at best, as should have become clear) capabilities even further, though Perhaps, there are just not enough people that use my setup, so that going through the trouble would probably be in no justifiable relation.
 
Kind regards,
Pete
 



I didn't follow this thread closely, so sorry if my next suggestion is
totally off. Maybe it works if one writes some small wrapper bash
scripts in WSL which then runs the Windows executables. I run tlmgr.bat
in bash (coming with Msys2) on Windows like this:

-> which tlmgr
/usr/local/bin/tlmgr

-> cat `which tlmgr`
#!/bin/sh

# This is a small wrapper around tlmgr.bat in order to use it under
# bash from Msys2. Note the double // for escaping /
cmd.exe //c tlmgr.bat "$@"; exit $?

Note that // is a Msys2-thing. cmd.exe and tlmgr.bat are in my $PATH
which looks like this in a MinGW64 bash-console (linebreaks added for
better legibility):

-> echo $PATH
/mingw64/bin:
/usr/local/bin:
/usr/bin:
/bin:
/c/Windows/System32:
/c/Windows:
/z/pathto/texlive/2022/bin/win32:
...

So I would write a wrapper to pdflatex, put it under WSL somewhere in
$PATH, put an entry for WSLENV[1] in it if necessary, and then start
Emacs and see if it works and AUCTeX finds the binary/script.

Best, Arash
