Docker on window 2016 VM without hyper-v

Hi Friends,

I need your help to setup/run docker on window machine.
Below is the configuration of machine.
OS: Window 2016 server standard
Version :1607
Type : VM

As this a VM machine, hence not able to configure hyper-v…

Now do we have any alternative way to run docker?

I try to setup using power shell, Docker get installed but when i try to run “docker images” then i am getting below error.

error during connect: Get http://%2F%2F.%2Fpipe%2Fdocker_engine/v1.40/images/json: open //./pipe/docker_engine: The system cannot find the file specified. In the default daemon configuration on Windows, the docker client must be run elevated to connect. This error may also indicate that the docker daemon is not running.

Please help me, i am trying from last 4 days but no luck.
