In this link, Docker.com suggests restarting the software, in my case the service was there and the article seems to be outdated. https://success.docker.com/article/docker-for-windows-fails-with-a-daemon-not-running-message
When we see this key error, we see that the “Docker Engine” service is not listed at the top, or not listed at all among the services.
The computer on my system opened the site. I think he didn’t show up becauseoh I just installed Docker Desktop for Windows and didn’t do it even though the installer didn’t always prompt me to reboot.
This is a problem because I downloaded the latest version of Docker and then Terraform. I can’t use docker provider because docker_host value doesn’t work, I’ve looked everywhere for solutions:
After using the Docker machine and creating a full VM, I noticed that the VM is using IPv6? what does ours mean

If Docker Desktop is installed on Windows, the following error may occur:
failed to connect: Get http://%2F%2F.%2Fpipe%2Fdocker_engine/v1.40/images/json: open //./pipe/docker_engine: The system cannot trust the specified file. Windows daemon configuration failure requires the Docker client to run with elevated privileges to connect. This error may also indicate that the Docker daemon is not running.
If you try to startceasing the service and also restarting it, you can get an awesome error window like this:
You may want to restore
factory settings, but that probably won’t fix the problem because you
A possible workaround is to switch each daemon between Linux and Windows containers.
.\DockerCli.exe -SwitchDaemon to activate the daemon. Note that you will probably have to run this command twice to get back to the installed (preferred) daemon:
After the command completes successfully, a notification should appear confirming that Docker Desktop is up and running.
cd “C:\Program Files\Docker\Docker”; ./DockerCli.exe-SwitchDaemon
I’m trying to run Windows Server 2019 in Docker process isolation mode (Docker Desktop doesn’t work here, my VPS isn’t Hyper-V ready). Run
I do this in powershell (everyone in admin mode)
docker run -it --isolation=process mcr.microsoft.com/windows/servercore:ltsc2019 cmd.exe /c ping 127.0.0.1 -t
docker: error connecting: during failover daemon installation For persistence on Windows, this particular Docker client must be running with elevated privileges in order to connect. : Message http://%2F%2F.%2Fpipe%2Fdocker_engine/v1. 24 /containers/create: open //./pipe/docker_engine: The system cannot find the specified file.
See ‘docker run –help’.
&'C:\Program Files\Docker\DockerCli.exe' -SwitchDaemon just because it was suggested here: Unable to run Docker on Windows
As suggested here, I tried to replicate the
DockerCli.exe file from the following Windows 10 Docker installation desktop in combination with Reran, but I get this:
Unhandled Exception: System.IO.FileNotFoundException: The file could not be loaded into assembly ‘Docker.Core, version=22.214.171.124646, culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null’, as well as one of its dependencies. The template cannot find the specified file.
in Docker.Cli.MainBackendCli.Run (args IReadOnlyCollection`1)
in Docker.Cli.MainBackendCli.Main(String args)
However, copying files using Desktop Docker, for example, doesn’t seem like the right approach.
Then I accidentally ran
dockerd in PowerShell as it’s the only executable in that folder:
Because I’m new, I don’t know if I’ve started the product kt just now, and if so, which one, I only see
start. But, I have no idea where it came from or what strategies I can tweak it.
Based on Peter’s suggestion, I tried
uninstall-Package -Name docker but then got
