Docker stops when configuring it to run Linux-Containers on Windows 10

  docker, linux-containers, windows

I just installed Docker for Windows 10 and wanted to configure it to be able to run Linux-Containers afterwards following the official manual (

Everything went fine so far, but when I run

.dockerd.exe -D --experimental -H "npipe:////./pipe//docker_lcow" --data-root c:lcow

in a PowerShell as admin it stops at a certain point:

time="2021-11-25T11:40:36.060119600+01:00" level=info msg="API listen on //./pipe//docker_lcow"

Afterwards I can only quit the process by pressing Ctrl+C.

I tried restarting the computer several times and searched the web for hours, but there is just no solution I can find.

Anybody has any ideas or solutions?

Best regards
