Docker Desktop Installation Failed - Failed to start service

Installer is failing to start service .

System Info> Window 10 Enterprise x64 Build 17763

Running the installer for Docker Desktop (downloaded from as administrator.

On the wizard screen titled Configuration, leave all default options selected.

Unpacking occurs and then eventually an error is displayed
"Installation failed

Failed to start service: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion as CommunityInstaller.ServiceActio.d__37.MoveNext()

Closing the wizard removes all installed files and leaves the c:\Program Files\Docker fodler empty. Rebooting removeds the orphaned service entry.

I have tried this several times and verified that the Hyper-V and Containers Windows Features are enabled.

Any help is appreciated.

Same issue, would love to know how to get around this.

I also get the same error and have validated that the pre-reqs are met. What’s the solution? :slight_smile:

exact same issue here

Would appreciate any info on this issue.
Looks very similar to my issue here …

a bit of a weird fix, but somehow disabling the Power service fixed the issue for me.

Can you be a bit more specific as to what your solution is?

went to msconfig > unchecked Power in the services tab and rebooted

Thanks. I will give it a try. If i may ask, what led you down that path?
