I’m an absolute beginner with docker. I need to use it to host .net framework applications. I tryied to install Docker for Windows but I could not, since I’m using the Home edition of windows 10.
Instead. The installer told me to try another one instead (which name I don’t recall) and I ended up with:
- Virtual Box
- Docker Quick Start Terminal
I was able to run the hello-world container, then I went for .net examples. From Kitematic I searched for “donetframework” and attempted to download the official image.
Then I got an error with the following message:
“image oparating system windows cannot be used on this platform”.
I believe that what’s happening actually is that I’m running the wrong version. The tutorials I’ve seen so far for .Net devs somehow assume one is running Docker For Windows (Windows 10 Pro) and advice to “click on the whale and make sure the windows version is selected”.
So, that’s the issue. I don’t see the whale haha. This must be because I’m running the Quickstart terminal only. How can I switch
to the windows version? (assuming that’s the issue)
