Docker not registering Message Files with Windows (EventViewer)

(Teilo) #1

Expected behavior

All events written by Docker to the Windows Event Log have correct Message descriptions. (ie DOcker is registered as a message provider and provides message formatters for the messages).

Actual behavior

Docker has not registered itself to handle it’s own events leading to even entries like the following:

The description for Event ID 0 from source Docker.exe cannot be found. Either the component that raises this event is not installed on your local computer or the installation is corrupted. You can install or repair the component on the local computer.

If the event originated on another computer, the display information had to be saved with the event.

The following information was included with the event: 

Socket.Datagram.input shutting down listening thread


windows 10 pro 10586.318
Docker version 1.11.1, build 5604cbe

Steps to reproduce the behavior

  1. install Docker (enter your trial key etc etc.
  2. restart windows and log in a few times…
  3. check the windows event log (eventvwr) (application log -> source = “docker.exe”
