How to Install Google Play on Windows 11?
Here we are not going to use Linux, or create a certain environment inside Windows 11, then create a script file for the installation. Instead, we are going to use Windows Subsystem for Android, ADBKit, and PowerShell for the installation. With these tools, you will avoid tons of works and can easily perform the installation. Personally, we loved this method the most.
Note: the installation will be made on a system with 64-bit only. You can’t run it on 32-bit systems, as Windows OS no longer supports 32-bit systems.
The first step will be to enable virtualization. For this purpose, you will go to Control Panel > Programs > Turn Windows Features ON or OFF. There you will find Virtual Machine Platforms and Windows Subsystem for Linux, check the boxes beside them, and click on OK.
Note: if you have installed Windows Subsystem for Android (WSA) on your Windows 11, then you will need to uninstall it. For uninstalling it, you go to Start > All apps, select the application, and click on Uninstall. Or you can go to Control Panel > Programs and Features, select a program, and uninstall it.

Add-AppxPackage -Register C:\WSA-Patched\AppxManifest.xml’
Note: you will need to replace the “C:\WSA-Patched\” with the location of the WSA-Patched folder on your system. Your command will look something like “Add-AppxPackage -Register C:\Users\SoftRaR\Downloads\WSA-Patched\AppxManifest.xml”.
Launch Windows Subsystem for Android
Go to the Start menu and run Windows Subsystem for Android. You will find the application in recommend applications in the Start menu.
In the window, you will click on Files for starting Windows Subsystem for Android (WSA). Soon a popup will appear on your screen by Windows Defender. Allow the Windows Defender Firewall by clicking on Allow Access.
