Either I am severely lacking in my ability to perform a web search or perhaps no one has been exploring this avenue, but I want to explore the possibility of using docker to run Windows applications in linux. My specific need in this case is to create an Autodesk Inventor container (which means a windows base image, .NET 4.5, Direct3D, and Excel dependencies). I am not looking to pirate anyone’s software or anything like that. I just want to run Inventor on linux, with as few windows dependencies as possible.
I appreciate anyone’s help moving forward here, with basic steps. My understanding thus far is that I first need to make a windows container somehow. Then, after that do i make a dockerfile that will run the installation of my dependencies and Inventor? Can docker do the graphical installation properly?
Please, forgive my ignorance. This is my first time actually taking a look at docker.
