Same issue, with same installer version & OS Version

Looks like it has been happening before this release :

I have the same error with Docker Desktop
Reran as admin, same issue.
Deleted c:\program files\Docker and C:\ProgramData\DockerDesktop and tried again - same issue.

This is different than the github issue - this issue is hanging on “Removing files” rather than “Installing components”.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Lucas-C’s suggestion of adding the downloaded installer .exe file to the Controlled Folder Access allowed apps list fixed the problem for me.
Start | Settings | and click on Controlled Folder Access
then click on “Allow an app through Controlled folder access”
Click on the big + beside “Add an allowed app” and choose Recently Blocked Apps.
Then you can choose the “Docker for Windows Installer.exe”.
Re-run the installer as admin and it works.
