Thanks for your helpful post. I have 3 follow-up questions.
A) The link in the last line is no longer functional. Does the resource still exist please?
B) Can your process be extended to run Visual Studio inside a windows docker container on a macOS? If so, is it installing docker inside of the windows VM and Visual studio inside of container? Am totally new to Docker.
C) This is using a Windows preview so it is that you have only 180 days and then your installation becomes inactive and you have to delete it from the VM?
Any assistance gratefully received.
