Hello All,

Below are the command used to install.

1st command:
Install-Module -Name DockerMsftProvider -Repository PSGallery -Force

Found no issue:

2nd Command:
Install-Package -Name docker -ProviderName DockerMsftProvider -Force -RequiredVersion 19.03

getting error:

Install-Package : Cannot rename because item at ‘C:\Program Files\dummyName’ does not exist.
At line:1 char:1

  • Install-Package -Name docker -ProviderName DockerMsftProvider -Force …
