Docker v2.3.0.5 [error during connect]

I installed the latest desktop docker for windows. Unfortunately my windows version is 64Bit/Home, and Pro version that is required.

Despite this fact, I installed Docker Desktop successfully to my system and I enabled also the Hyper-V from Bios and Windows (in my version build 18362 it is referred as Windows HyperVision Platform).

I can verify it via PowerShell command bcdedit.

PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> bcdedit /set hypervisorlaunchtype auto
The operation completed successfully.

The problem here is that i get error during connect. I verify that I am connected with
Hubhub.docker.com using my credentials.

So, for example, running s simple docker version command, I get this. Can someone help to solve the problem ?

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.

No solution found for Home edition. I upgraded to PRO and it solved.

It seems that no containers can be found in home edition.
