Error while deploying hello-world Windows Container

I am trying to deploy the hello-world Windows container by running the command c:> docker run hello-world and I get the following error:

failed to register layer: re-exec error: exit status 1: output: hcsshim::ProcessBaseLayer \?\C:\ProgramData\Docker\windowsfilter\c8ac8ba1ede20a04796940a2c15dce1f50a44974f58d8865f44c9f0dfb6033bf: The semaphore timeout period has expired.

Please help.


Hello @rajeevnaik,

This error occurs for various reasons, but it’s oven related to docker installation or configuration.
To troubleshoot this issue you could try to restart the docker service or check the availability drive to ensure there’s enough space, if the issue still remeaning you can reinstall the docker engine with the latest version.

You can discover this path for logs info: C:\ProgramData\Docker\containers\<container-id>\<container-id>-json.log
