By typing: docker --version it should show the version. The truth is that I can not do anything
As soon as I type "docker" on the command prompt ans press "Enter" the following message is displayed:
unable to resolve docker endpoint: open C:\Users\Username.docker\machine\machines\default\ca.pem: The system cannot find the path specified.
I looked into that path and the ca.pem file doesn't exist.
<!-- Please, help us understand the problem. For instance:
<!-- A reproducible case, Dockerfiles with reproduction inside is best. -->
Troubleshooting Steps I tried: Uninstall docker for Desktop and installed it again. I was hoping it would install the certificate, ca.pem, but it didn't happen.
Another case for the same error: PC Information: Win10 home 2004, os 19041.264 wsl2 (ubuntu, with docker.io version 18.xx.xx installed). docker works fine in wsl2.
Actual behavior Install 'Docker Desktop Installer (for win10 home) Version 184.108.40.206, stable channel'. Then type 'docker' in cmd.exe PS C:\Users\fjt\getting-started> docker version unable to resolve docker endpoint: open C:\Users\fjt.docker\machine\machines\default\ca.pem: The system cannot find the path specified.
in wsl2: 'docker version' runs fine. and it report version is '18.xx.xx'. The original output is missing.
Solution Remove 'docker.io' in wsl2. Then reinstall 'Docker Desktop Installer (win10 home)' in Win10
Note The direcotry 'C:\Users\fjt\.docker\machine' doesn't exits. So I delete the windows environment variables: DOCKER_CERT_PATH DOCKER_MACHINE_NAME, DOCKER_TLS_VERIFY. And docker runs ok: C:\Users\fjt\getting-started>docker build -t docker101tutorial .
