You are trying to install the Windows 10 1709+ Ubuntu WSL on a Windows 10 1703 installation. That will not be possible.

What you actually want to do, if you want to install WSL today on a Windows 10 1511+ to Windows 10 1703 installation simply do the following:

  1. Enable Developer Mode

  1. Install Windows Subsystem for Linux Beta

  1. Reboot

how can I enable it?

You cannot enable it. What you have found can only be installed on a Windows 10 build 16215 or higher installation. You should simply wait until 1709 is released or use an Insider Preview build of RS3 (aka 1709) if you cannot wait.
