Virtual disk support provider error with linux container work on windows

docker

Diagnostic id: 303BD3C8-7427-472D-824C-9A9CEACB35E7/20181205175021

I cannot manage to make docker (linux container) work on my machine.

I always get this “virtual disk support provider for the specified file was not found” error:

[17:50:09.051][Linux ][Error ] Failed to start: Unable to create: The running command stopped because the preference variable “ErrorActionPreference” or common parameter is set to Stop: Failed to create the virtual hard disk.
