Error installing Docker 3.6 for WIndows 10 20H2

Error installing Docker 3.6 for WIndows 10. I cannot seem to install docker on my windows 10 enterprise. I have checked all the solutions on the internet. Virtualization is enabled, WSL2 is enabled etc
Microsoft Windows 10 Version 20H2(OS build 19042.110)

The error I encounter is :
Component CommunityInstaller.AutoStartAction failed: Attempted to perform an unauthorized operation.
at CommunityInstaller.InstallWorkflow.d__29.MoveNext()
— End of stack trace from previous location where exception was thrown —
at System.Runtime.ExceptionServices.ExceptionDispatchInfo.Throw()
at System.Runtime.CompilerServices.TaskAwaiter.HandleNonSuccessAndDebuggerNotification(Task task)
at CommunityInstaller.InstallWorkflow.d__23.MoveNext()

My user profile is enabled to use docker in computer management as well. Your help will be highly appreciated.


if you are using docker desktop with WSL, before re-installing, unregister the existing docker-desktop WSL distribution.

wsl --unregister docker-desktop
