Steps to reproduce the behavior

  1. Executing …
    “C:\Program Files\Docker\Docker\DockerForWindows.exe”

(Larryeitel) #2

Got same error with rc3-beta18 (build 5193)


(Emmanuel Briney) #3

Have you try Reset to factory defaults in the reset settings?

Can you dump the log if it fails?


(Erwin Steffens) #4

I have the same issue. Restarting and resetting to defaults did not work. Also tried to re-install. See attached log file. Version is 1.12-rc3-beta18.
