My first time trying to use Docker. Have downloaded and installed Docker Desktop for Windows. Appears to install fine, but am unable to use it. If I try to start the GUI it will just spin for around half an hour and then crash. From the CLI I can’t even complete a version check:
Client: Docker Engine - Community
Cloud integration: 1.0.4
API version: 1.41
Go version: go1.13.15
Git commit: 7287ab3
Built: Tue Dec 8 18:55:31 2020
error during connect: This error may indicate that the docker daemon is not running.: Get http://%2F%2F.%2Fpipe%2Fdocker_engine/v1.24/version: open //./pipe/docker_engine: The system cannot find the file specified.
Docker Desktop Service appears to be running (shows as automatic and running in services.msc). I have Hyper-V installed. WSL2 is installed (and I tested it after the Docker problems by installing and running OpenSuSE Leap). I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled Docker for Windows multiple times now, no change.
I’m on Windows 10 Pro x64 Build 19042.685. What should I be checking next?
