Docker Installation on windows server 2016

Hello,

I have successfully installed Docker in my windows server 2016 after too much trial and run method.

To have a clear idea of installation, I am trying to install docker in another server with a similar configuration.

I am noticing that when docker is installed in my working server I see a docker folder inside my docker folder with all docker CLI which I am not able to replicate in the new server
