Docker Desktop 3.0 Odd Installation Error - Failed to register product

I have been running Docker Desktop for a couple of years, but recently upgraded to 3.0.0, running on Windows 10 Enterprise. Here is the error:

Failed to register product: Retrieving the COM class factory for component with CLSID {1ECCA34C-E88A-44E3-8D6A-8921BDE9E452} failed due to the following error: 80070422 The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070422).

at CommunityInstaller.InstallWorkflow.d__23.MoveNext()

This happens during installation. Our company locks down our laptops, so potentially something needs to be turned on or I’m missing a service or something? Various searches have not turned up anything, so am stuck.
