DockerDesktop on WIndows fails to run and fails to uninstall

The update Docker Desktop for Windows v (42247) will error on startup, The application will not uninstall either.
The edge version exhibits the same behavior. I think it was 2.1.7…

Fortunately someone posted a power shell script to remove the application and cleaning the registry so it isn’t in the list of installed applications is fairly easy.

Also, fortunately I kept my previous installer version (39773) which works perfectly.

It would be nice if broken releases were not pushed out, especially when presented as stable.
I moved off of the edge version because of this and now it occurs with stable releases.


Same problem here with and edge

I cannot run older versions of Docker as Network Shares are blocked for Docker on our systems.

On some systems Docker works but on a lot it does not.

Same problem for me:
OS: Microsfot Windows 10 Enterprise
Version: 10.0.16299 Build 16299

   One or more errors occurred.

   at Docker.Core.Pipe.NamedPipeClient.<TrySendAsync>d__5.MoveNext()
--- End of stack trace from previous location where exception was thrown ---

   at Docker.ApiServices.TaskQueuing.TaskQueue.<>c__DisplayClass18_0.<.ctor>b__1()

Note: If I install as windows containers it works fine. But when I switch to using Linux containers it gives the same error.

Downgrading to version has worked fine for me.
