Running Windows XP in a container

(Ravirajkarasulli) #1

I have a few legacy applications that work on Windows XP. We are trying to create a docker image for it and run the application.

Is it possible to get a Windows XP base image or is there a way we can create our own image?

the container is not like a VM… it depends on a lot of host function to make it work.
i don’t think any of XP would run directly on top of the newer OS (need windows 10 really) base
