Install fails on windows 10

Hi guys.

The installation of docker desktop fails on my windows 10 workstation. I get this stacktrace:

Impossible de récupérer le nom plat de l’ordinateur cible (2138).
à System.DirectoryServices.AccountManagement.SAMStoreCtx.LoadComputerInfo()
à System.DirectoryServices.AccountManagement.SAMStoreCtx.get_MachineUserSuppliedName()
à System.DirectoryServices.AccountManagement.SAMStoreCtx.FindNativeByNT4IdentRef(Type principalType, String urnValue)
à System.DirectoryServices.AccountManagement.SAMStoreCtx.FindPrincipalByIdentRef(Type principalType, String urnScheme, String urnValue, DateTime referenceDate)

The french sentence says something like “cant” get the name of the target computer"

My PC has a short name, a long name, a description and is in the group WORKGROUP

Please help. What can cause problems with this function LoadComputerInfo() ?? Tx guys.

Starting windows service ‘Workstation’ should fix this.
Seems it’s required only for installation.
