Unable to re-install. Installer claims "Your version is up to date"

I have previously installed Docker Desktop for Mac, but I’ve encountered multiple issues when attempting to install on Windows 10 Pro (version 1809 OS Build 17763.316). I used the script “How to completely remove Docker from Windows 10” (found here: )

but it apparently doesn’t. I re-downloaded the installer program, but when I run it, it throws the following message:

Docker Desktop
Existing version is up to date.

and a Close button.

So now I don’t have Docker and can’t seem to install it. Registry error? Breadcrumbs?

What’s up?

Please disregard. I found the solution, and of course it involves the Windows Registry (don’t get me started…). The was a key in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall called “Docker for Windows.” I deleted it and all of its sub-keys and the installation then went to completion.

Now to find out if it works. :slight_smile:
