Installing Docker Toolbox for Windows 10 for Multiple Users?


(Romatlo) #1

I was able to install Docker Toolbox for Windows on Windows 10 Pro 1709 when logged in as a regular domain user (member of local administrators group on the VM), and able to run Hello World app when running from the Docker Quickstart Terminal (run as administrator). However, after I logout or reboot (says VirtualBox interface still active), and login as a different regular domain user (also member of local administrators group on the VM), I get the error below when I run the Docker Quickstart Terminal (run as administrator).

Looks like something went wrong in step ‘Looking for vboxmanage.exe’… Press any key to continue…

Anyone have any suggestions? I’d like to have a VM for more than one user to share…

ok, just to be complete, this is how it was resolved. that computer was older, did not have the virtual, but that was not the main issue. On a newer computer, in an admin account, it installed and ran fine. Then, from an non-admin, it did not work. First I had to stop the instance on the admin account( you need to do a stop, you just can’t close the window), then I had to run the docker as admin in the non-admin account.
