Installing Docker CE on Windows Server 2019 1809 SAC

It is possible to install Docker CE directly on Windows Server 2019, which gives first party support to running Docker containers on a Windows host. It's very easy to do and is done using Install-Package.

Install-Module DockerMsftProvider -Force

Install-Package Docker -ProviderName DockerMsftProvider -Force

You will get a daemon connection error if you do not restart the host after the installation.


This will run a first party container using the Nano Server image, which will be pulled from Docker Hub. 

docker run hello-world:nanoserver
