"Docker failed to initialize" Error
Why am I getting this "Docker failed to initialize" error?
After installing the latest version of Docker Desktop on Windows, you can run "Docker Desktop" and hope it will work automatically.
But because of compatibility issues, running the latest version of Docker Desktop on Windows with default options may give you the "Docker failed to initialize" error.
There are a number of reports of this error on the Internet. Suggestions solutions include:
1. Un-install and re-install Docker Desktop on Windows. It may or may not solve the problem.
2. Re-install an older version like 3.3.3. It may or may not solve the problem.
3. Cleanup Docker personal settings directories. It may or may not solve the problem.
> Del C:\Users[USER]\AppData\Local\Docker > Del C:\Users[USER]\AppData\Roaming\Docker > Del C:\Users[USER]\AppData\Roaming\Docker Desktop
If you terminate the Docker.Service from Task Manager, and start Docker Desktop again, you may see more errors and dead Docker consol screen.
If you look at the log file, you may see error messages like:
[GoBackendProcess ][Info ] msg="NewSharer: WSL2 engine is enabled so no file sharer is required." [GoBackendProcess ][Info ] msg="ipc.NewClient: e270741f-PathControllerPKG -> \\\\.\\pipe\\dockerBackendApiServer ... [GoBackendProcess ][Info ] msg="enabling filesystem caching" [GoBackendProcess ][Info ] msg="filesystem exports are: (2)" [GoBackendProcess ][Info ] msg="volume control server listening on \\\\.\\pipe\\dockerVolume" [GoBackendProcess ][Fatal ] msg="unable to start fileserver: unable to listen on 4099: A socket operation encountered a dead network." [GoBackendProcess ][Error ] Process died
So the best option is to try different old versions of Docker Desktop, until you find one that works for your Windows system.
