I have installed docker in windows 10 Home edition but docker command is not running successfully.

$docker version

API version:   1.37
Go version:    go1.9.4
Git commit:    0520e24302
Built: Fri Mar 23 08:31:36 2018
OS/Arch:       windows/amd64
Experimental:  false
Orchestrator:  swarm
error during connect: Get http://%2F%2F.%2Fpipe%2Fdocker_engine/v1.37/version: 
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.

I have tested running as administrator also but no luck.Any suggestion.


Can you confirm that you have a vm running under docker-machine?

Hi hugopinto,

While installing DOckertools ,the installer installed Vmbox but while lunching Quickstartterminal during pre-create checks it failed showing this computer does not have VT-X/AMD enabled.After some serach in internet I found below steps to start it successfully.

Modify a command line in file located in C:\Program Files\Docker Toolbox directory
