Re installer docker for widows

I have previously installed docker for windows, but it has been uninstalled
I now need to re install it and running the installer reported no errors
However, when I try to run docker desktop I get this error

Failed to deploy distro docker-desktop to C:\Users\Graham.Labdon\AppData\Local\Docker\wsl\distro: exit code: -1
stdout: Data supplied is of wrong type.

Please can someone explain what this means?
