Running UI tests on Windows Docker container produce error Chrome failed to start: crashed

Description

Hello, I am new to docker and I am trying to run my selenium ui tests in windows docker container.
I have the ChromeDriver and ChromeInstaller copied and installed on my Dockerfile.

Please, please give me advise on my issue. Thank you.

But when doing docker run, I am getting this error

> Error Message: Message: unknown error: Chrome failed to start: crashed.
>     (chrome not reachable)
>     (The process started from chrome location C:\Program Files\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe is no longer running, so ChromeDriver is assuming that Chrome has crashed.)
>   selenium.common.exceptions.WebDriverException: Message: unknown error: Chrome failed to start: crashed.
>     (chrome not reachable)
>     (The process started from chrome location C:\Program Files\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe is no longer running, so ChromeDriver is assuming that Chrome has crashed.)

Steps to reproduce the issue:

  1. Create DOCKERFILE
  2. build image from DOCKERFILE
  3. Docker run

I am expecting to have a successful run of ui tests.
I cant seem to make Chrome work even if it was installed :frowning:
