Vpnkit appcrash

I just took the upgrade to the latest Docker for Windows on my Windows 10 machine, which I find myself regretting now, since I have some work I need to get done this evening.

Upon taking the upgrade, I can no longer start docker, and it repeats the following errors in my system logs:

Windows cannot access the file for one of the following reasons: there is a problem with the network connection, the disk that the file is stored on, or the storage drivers installed on this computer; or the disk is missing. Windows closed the program vpnkit.exe because of this error.

Program: vpnkit.exe

The error value is listed in the Additional Data section.
User Action

  1. Open the file again. This situation might be a temporary problem that corrects itself when the program runs again.
  2. If the file still cannot be accessed and
  • It is on the network, your network administrator should verify that there is not a problem with the network and that the server can be contacted.
  • It is on a removable disk, for example, a floppy disk or CD-ROM, verify that the disk is fully inserted into the computer.
  1. Check and repair the file system by running CHKDSK. To run CHKDSK, click Start, click Run, type CMD, and then click OK. At the command prompt, type CHKDSK /F, and then press ENTER.
  2. If the problem persists, restore the file from a backup copy.
  3. Determine whether other files on the same disk can be opened. If not, the disk might be damaged. If it is a hard disk, contact your administrator or computer hardware vendor for further assistance.

Any ideas what might cause this?

I am experiencing the same issue - this just started today.

Did you find a solution to this issue.

Ran into this issue today and I got docker up and running again by replacing vpnkit.exe and libgmp-10.dll with the latest builds found here https://ci.appveyor.com/project/moby/vpnkit/build/1.0.231/artifacts

Worked for me … your mileage may vary …
