Windows 10 Unable to connect to database

I am new to Docker, and evaluating it. To test out Docker from a developer point of view I created a fresh windows 10 virtual machine in VMWare workstation on my devbox. I then installed docker on it and it said i needed to enable hyper-v. I let it do this and reboot. After that Docker displays an error on startup saying “Unable to connect to database”.

I have tried “bcdedit /set hypervisorlaunchtype Auto” (found via google) but this didn’t make any difference. Executed this command both on the host is and in the virtual machine.

I also tried “Set-VMProcessor -VMName “Docker” -ExposeVirtualizationExtensions $true” but this simply comes back with an error “Set-VMProcessor is not recognized”.

Anyone managed to successfully run Docker in a virtual machine?
