Docker Build command not installing 32bit application vs_BuildTools.exe(Ms Build) installer

Should have created a Microsoft Visual Studio Installer folder under 32 bit Program Files (x86)

No folder created

I am currently runing powershell script to create Build images on Windows 2016 docker container instances, the script used to work without any issues from last couple of months but suddenly the script started to failm after investiating it looks like the docker not able to create or install 32bit applications on windows 2016 servers.

  • the output of:
    • DockerDebugInfo.ps1 using Powershell on Windows
  • a reproducible case if this is a bug, Dockerfiles FTW
