How to I fix the problem of docker domean error connection

Client: Docker Engine - Community
Cloud integration: 1.0.12
Version: 20.10.5
API version: 1.41
Go version: go1.13.15
Git commit: 55c4c88
Built: Tue Mar 2 20:14:53 2021
OS/Arch: windows/amd64
Context: default
Experimental: true
error during connect: This error may indicate that the docker daemon is not running.: Get http://%2F%2F.%2Fpipe%2Fdocker_engine/v1.24/version: open //./pipe/docker_engine: The system cannot find the file specified.

I tried & ‘C:\Program Files\Docker\Docker\DockerCli.exe’ -SwitchDaemon but still failed.

The only working solution I figured out is to uninstall docker desktop for windows and reinstall. IS THERE a better command to restart once docker is stopped

Hi Bikash,

Please try to cd to the Docker directory using: “cd C:\Program Files\Docker\Docker” and then entering the command “.\dockercli -SwitchDaemon”. Maybe the docker CLI command is not getting the flag that you are passing. Let us know if that helps. Thanks!
