Bug Description

[Impact]

This affects all wslu tools on all releases when using from the Ubuntu app from Microsoft Store. When other LTS version of app is installed from Microsoft Store, baseexec generated by wslu on Ubuntu app will not be using ubuntu.exe but other LTS release apps (such as ubuntu1804.exe)

[Test Case]

 * Install Ubuntu and Ubuntu 18.04 LTS from Microsoft Store.
 * run any wslu tools (like wslfetch --help)
 * Verify that ~/.config/wslu/baseexec contains the path to ubuntu.exe

[Regression Potential]

* None for now.

The regression potential should be a description of what could go wrong when fixing this bug and discuss how to test it. "None for now" doesn't do that.
