I get this error when used: usage: ros2 [-h] Call ros2 <command> -h for more detailed usage. ... ros2: error: argument Call ros2 <command> -h for more detailed usage.: invalid choice: 'launch' (choose from 'action', 'bag', 'component', 'daemon', 'doctor', 'extension_points', 'extensions', 'interface', 'lifecycle', 'multicast', 'node', 'param', 'pkg', 'run', 'security', 'service', 'test', 'topic', 'trace', 'wtf')

Is there any alternative to launch for windows? Thanks.

launch should work on Windows; it is a cross-platform utility written in Python. This seems like an installation error. What version of ROS 2 did you install, and how did you install it? Some additional details here may give us an idea on where to look.
