Run Docker CE on Windows 2019 Server


I have a virtualized Windows 2019 server and I’m looking to run the community version of Docker on it. There aren’t any instructions for doing this with the CE version. So I wondering is it actually possible to do this?


Uninstall your current Docker CE. Enable Nested Virtualization if you’re running Docker Containers using Linux Virtual Machine running on Hyper-V. Then install the current preview build of Docker EE. Restart Docker Service after the change.

Hi @lewish95

I’m looking to run the community version though? My understanding is that EE will have an associated fee and presumably the preview build isn’t perpetual?
