Can't make Docker with Python run in windows

I’m using the following command to run python using Docker by the Prompt:

docker run -it --rm --name filescreening -v "%cd%":/usr/src/myapp -w /usr/src/myapp python:latest python filescreening/


  • How to specify different .dockerignore files for different builds in the same project?
  • Golang Mac OSX build for Docker machine
  • Kubernetes With DPDK
  • Docker login: cannot input value for username on windows + powershell
  • hosting WordPress on Docker or on Physical host
  • Most appropriate container for a data only container?
  • python: can't open file 'filescreening/': [Errno 2] No such file or directory

    I’m executing the command from the FileScreening folder, and i have a filescreening/ inside.

    I have a Linux background, this is the first time i’m using Windows… and this command (besides the "%cd%") should be working…
