Docker Toolbox for Windows

Before installing Docker Toolbox for Windows onto your system, make sure the following conditions have been met:
Intel System Studio on Windows has been tested with the free legacy Docker Toolbox for Windows product on
Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 development systems
. It is recommended for use on Windows 7, Windows 8.x and on those Windows 10 systems that do not support Docker for Windows.


Before installing Docker Toolbox for Windows onto your system, make sure the following conditions have been met:
  • Docker Toolbox for Windows
    64-bit version of Windows 7 or higher
    . A complete set of Docker Toolbox for Windows requirements can be found in the Docker Toolbox online documentation.
  • Docker Toolbox for Windows
    that your development system's CPU include support for the full range of hardware virtualization available in most modern mobile, desktop and server CPUs. On an Intel processor this means your CPU supports
    VT-x with EPT
    (all three virtualization features must be supported). You can determine if your Intel CPU supports these features by visiting and searching for the processor in your development system. On AMD* processors the necessary virtualization features are known generally as
  • Some systems disable the CPU virtualization features in the BIOS, which prevents the OS from detecting and making use of virtualization features. To determine if virtualization is enabled on your Windows system, see this Docker Toolbox for Windows virtualization check (the Windows 8.x virtualization check also applies to Windows 10 systems). Also, confirm that virtualization has been enabled in your system's BIOS. The process used to enable virtualization in a BIOS varies widely, as does the name of the feature(s) in the BIOS setup menus. This AMIDuOS* knowledgebase article provides some help with this issue.

Product and Performance Information


Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
