Troubleshooting Docker Toolbox for Windows Installation

This section contains troubleshooting topics you can use to insure that Docker has been properly installed and configured on your system.

Docker is partially installed or misconfigured

A Windows system on which Docker Toolbox has been installed but has a configuration issue will respond with something like the following to the "docker version" command (from the shell created by the "
Docker Quickstart Terminal
"):
$ docker version Client: Version: 17.07.0-ce API version: 1.31 Go version: go1.8.3 Git commit: 8784753 Built: Tue Aug 29 17:41:05 2017 OS/Arch: windows/amd64 error during connect: Get http://%2F%2F.%2Fpipe%2Fdocker_engine/v1.31/version: open //./pipe/docker_engine: The system cannot find the file specified. In the default daemon configuration on Windows, the docker client must be run elevated to connect. This error may also indicate that the docker daemon is not running.
To start the Docker Toolbox for Windows subsystem, click the "
Docker Quickstart Terminal
" shortcut or type the following commands in a command (cmd.exe) prompt (including the double-quote " characters):
> cd "%ProgramFiles%\Docker Toolbox" > "%ProgramFiles%\Git\bin\bash.exe" $ ./start.sh
Note that Docker Toolbox for Windows installs bash onto your system, which must be used to run the Docker Toolbox startup script (start.sh).

Confirming that Docker is installed and running

A configured and running Docker Toolbox installation will respond similarly to this (from shell created by the "
Docker Quickstart Terminal
"):
$ docker version Client: Version: 17.07.0-ce API version: 1.31 Go version: go1.8.3 Git commit: 8784753 Built: Tue Aug 29 17:41:05 2017 OS/Arch: windows/amd64 Server: Version: 17.10.0-ce API version: 1.33 (minimum version 1.12) Go version: go1.8.3 Git commit: f4ffd25 Built: Tue Oct 17 19:05:23 2017 OS/Arch: linux/amd64 Experimental: false
