Error when trying to run a Docker Windows container

I’m using Docker Linux container for some time but yesterday I had some extra time and decided to give the Docker Windows container a try.

I opened a command prompt and typed

docker run -it --rm microsoft/nanoserver powershell

Unfortunately I didn’t end with a working container. Instead I got the following output:

Unable to find image 'microsoft/nanoserver:latest' locally

latest: Pulling from microsoft/nanoserver

bce2fbc256ea: Downloading

3ac17e2e6106: Downloading

C:\Program Files\Docker\Docker\Resources\bin\docker.exe: unknown blob.

Turns out that you need to have Windows 10 Anniversary Edition (Professional or Enterprise) running on your physical computer. Sad smile

Time for a Windows Update…
