Nanoserver software installation fails

Hello everyone,

I have created a container with windows nanoserver on my windows machine and I want to test the app I developed inside that container.

Unfortunately I’m getting the following error when trying to install my app in the nanoserver container:


RUN C:\Temp\setup.exe -install silent


The command ‘cmd /S /C C:\Temp\setup.exe -install silent’ returned a non-zero code: 3221225781

I am aware that there are difficulties in executing MSI files with that specific type of image, does it have also issues with normal exe installer?

I have also tried to install on the servercore base image of windows and it does work properly.

Thanks for any advice.
