Can't Get Past: Docker for Mac needs privileged access to install its networking components and links to the Docker apps

docker

(Arthur Ryman) #1

I previously successfully installed Docker for Mac in June 2017. I haven’t used it for a while. When I started it again I got prompted to update it. Now when I launch Docker I get prompted for my password, with the following expected message:

Docker for Mac needs privileged access to install its networking components and links to the Docker apps.

I provide my password, there is a slight delay, then I get prompted again. It looks like some process is blocking the installation. I do have Trend Micro Systems security running, but a colleague does too and says it doesn’t block him.

Anyone else having this problem? Is there a fix? Thx.

I am having this problem, would love to hear if there is a fix. I tried reinstalling Docker but it didn’t help.

I solved the problem by running the docker command from the command line using sudo.

Tried that, but I just get a message saying “Failed to register new version.”

Try booting in safe mode and using sudo.
