Windows Image on Docker

How can I create an image in Docker with Windows as the base OS.

For instance; the ‘FROM‘ command in a Dockerfile is used to load the base OS kernel. Eg: ‘FROM ubuntu‘(ubuntu kernel in this case).

  • When I start my app with PM2 + Docker, just run and exit
  • PyCharm Docker Deployment “[Errno 2] No such file or directory”
  • Is there a way in which I can run a command like ‘FROM windows7‘.
    I need it to setup image for build purpose, since I need to run Microsoft compiler ‘cl’ ; which runs only on windows.

    So the dockerfile will look something like:

    FROM windows7

    RUN install cl

    Docker depends on the sharing of an linux kernel.

    In the moment Microsoft and Docker are working on a Windows version, sharing the windows kernel. This is already working! But only for windows 10 insider build. Where a special linux kernel like micro windows is included, which is then the base for the windows container.


    FROM windows7

    will never exist. Depending on the architecture of windows7.

    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
