Install Docker on Windows 10 Home
Sometimes we have to install Docker as fast as possible to execute a project, but we find that our version of Windows 10 is Home.
But knowing that we try to install Docker and it throws us the following error message:
This occurs because Docker needs Hyper-V to run on Windows and the basic version doesn’t have that feature.
Searching in some Reddit Post, I found how to Install Docker without the need to buy the Windows Pro or Enterprise license, so it was interesting to share it.

hyper v.bat file and add the following code to our file.
With our file ready we run it in administrator mode, you can use PowerShell.
This process takes a little time.
When it’s done, don’t restart your computer.
Like Hyper-V, we will create a file called
container.bat and add the following code.
We run our file in administrator mode and wait a few minutes while it runs.

You shouldn’t restart the computer if you do, we will have to configure EditionID again.
To install Docker, we download the executable available in Docker Hub.
Once Docker is downloaded, we run the installer as administrator.
Docker will start to run. When the installation is complete the computer will restart.
Great Job!, Docker has been installed.
If you want to test the docker installation, you can use the following docker command.
