Visual Studio 2017 stopped running docker-compose
In Visual Studio 2017 I am working on a project with 3 dotnet core projects. It was building and starting the containers using docker-compose as the startup project. Now it is giving me an error that it cannot find the container starting with a given name. In the Output window in the Show output from:
docker selected it shows the combined docker-compose.yml files.
It appears that it is not building the containers, hence why it cannot find the container it is looking for by name. After seeing this I ran all the docker commands in PowerShell and it built the images and started the containers right up. With the containers in place Visual Studio started, but gave me a different error.
I’m wondering why Visual Studio would not be building the containers anymore.
Note: I have had trouble in the past when spinning up the containers using docker cli that Visual Studio would throw exceptions, but I have cleaned docker running containers, network, volume, and images…
Thanks for your help in advance. I am loving docker, but there are some frustrations when using the VS tools thus far…

Are you running the project by clicking the ‘Docker” button at the top of the VS2017 window? This should build and run the correct container.
