I tried to run it and got errors. So I tried to see if it could be repaired, but no such option. I couldn’t uninstall it. I tried following all instructions and suggestions. There are Ruby and Python installations that apparently conflict. After a pretty thorough cleaning of my Windows installation that I couldn’t uninstall, only a Docker folder remained inside Program Files.
Finally uninstalled and restarted computer. Then I tried once again to do a clean install but I got this error:
Unpacking failed: The process cannot access the file 'C:\Program Files\Docker\Docker\com.docker.service' because it is being used by another process. at CommunityInstaller.InstallWorkflow.<DoHandleD4WPackageAsync>d__30.MoveNext() --- End of stack trace from previous location where exception was thrown --- at System.Runtime.ExceptionServices.ExceptionDispatchInfo.Throw() at System.Runtime.CompilerServices.TaskAwaiter.HandleNonSuccessAndDebuggerNotification(Task task) at CommunityInstaller.InstallWorkflow.<DoProcessAsync>d__23.MoveNext()
The fact that Docker Service remained after uninstalling Docker Desktop confused me, but there it was. There was no Docker app in the Windows Settings Apps & features to uninstall. I’m at a total loss. I don’t know what to do now.
I have NO Docker running. The best I got was an installation that said it was successful & directed me to run Docker Desktop and go to Settings, but I could never get there. It would start up and then just vanish. I’ve got no docker-compose and of course no docker dpkg. I’m dead in the water.
It installed successfully then died. Then I managed to uninstall it, but can’t even install it now. How do I get my Docker back?
