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/


  • Docker: Not a valid repository:
  • Docker on Windows with Dart Docker Image
  • Should using a temporary docker container remove a volume?
  • Selecting different code branches when using a shared base image in Docker
  • Fabric8 - Microservices - Error out during build phase
  • docker-machine ssh on AWS
  • 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…
