Docker “hello-world” is giving “process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process”


(Healthlabs) #1

We have just uninstalled Docker Community Edition and installed Enterprise Edition on a Windows Server 2016 System as per these steps.

On reaching the last step which is to test a hello-world container we are receiving the following error:

C:\Program Files\Docker\docker.exe: failed to register layer: re-exec error: exit status 1: output: ProcessUtilityVMImage ?\C:\ProgramData\Docker\windowsfilter\e345ad40cc8f7d073f62501b7445d42d677889c04b2c6fe0963ea6e092b52f95\UtilityVM: The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process.

Is this related to the previous installation?
How might we fix this?
