Prerequisites for Windows

  • Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016 are supported.

    • Use the default Linux containers setting. From the Docker for Windows menu, you can toggle between the Linux or Windows daemon. If your settings have been changed from the default, select Switch to Linux containers… to use Linux containers. Codewind only works with Linux containers.
