How to run Docker desktop on Windows VDI

Hi

I am trying to install Docker Desktop on windows VDI. But installation fails evert time.
Please help me if someone have faced this issue.

TIA

It is not possible to run Docker Desktop in nested virtualization. See here.

Hi Tekki
There is a way to install Docker Desktop on windows VDI.
You need HyperV and containers feature enabled on the windows VDI.

After enabling these features, I was able to install Docker Desktop on my windows VDI.

Thanks

Thanks for trying this. Seems Docker Desktop can do more than the documentation knows.
