I keep getting an error

Hey! i keep getting “error during connect: This error may indicate that the docker daemon is not running.: Post http://%2F%2F.%2Fpipe%2Fdocker_engine/v1.24/build?buildargs=%7B%7D&cachefrom=%5B%5D&cgroupparent=&cpuperiod=0&cpuquota=0&cpusetcpus=&cpusetmems=&cpushares=0&dockerfile=Dockerfile&labels=%7B%7D&memory=0&memswap=0&networkmode=default&rm=1&shmsize=0&t=myos-buildenv&target=&ulimits=null&version=1: open //./pipe/docker_engine: The system cannot find the file specified.”. i only have docker installed, no paths setup and no machines

i am also not capable of virtuzalitation (meaning docker does not run).

i just wanna build an image how can i fix this?

Are you using Windows or Linux?
Under linux try the following command sudo systemctl restart docker to restart your docker daemon.
If you are using windows check what the docker app says.

i use windows and it says my pc does not support virtualization

There you have it. Your PC doesn’t support virtualization.
Since docker heavily relied on Linux kernel features, docker desktop runs a linux vm, which requires virtualization.
Try enabling virtualization in your BIOS. If your CPU is not ancient chances are pretty high that your CPU supports it.
