When will we be able to build Docker images and push them to Docker Hub after successful AppVeyor build?

    Docker support will be available along with Windows Server 2016 build worker images, hopefully later this year, but no exact ETA yet.

    We are currently working on Windows Server 2016 build worker image which will have Docker on it with base "Nano" and "Core" images. It should be available in beta by the end of this month.

    Are there any updates on this? If Docker support is now in beta how could I go about requesting access?

    Yes, Windows Server 2016 image with Docker pre-installed is available for testing:

    Could you please confirm your AppVeyor account name, so we can enable that image for you?

    When trying this out by adding the following to my appveyor.yml:
    image: Windows Server 2016

    I get the following error:
    Build worker image not found: Windows Server 2016

    Can you confirm it was enabled for our account, and that I am using the correct image?

    Hello !

    If there are still opened slots, we'd be delighted to be part of the beta for docker support as well: We are revising our build infrastructure and this is a Must have for us !

    Many Thanks !

    @Thomas Windows Server 2016 with Docker is generally available now as part of Visual Studio 2017 build worker image!

    Is it possible to get docker from edge channel? I am currently using multistage dockerfile, they are not yet available in stable release.

    Docker is just two files: docker.exe and dockerd.exe in “C:\Program Files\Docker” directory. You can replace them during the build:
    1. Stop docker service
    2. Download Docker files from edge channel and unpack to Docker directory.
    3. Start docker service.

    Is there a way to configure the Docker host to build Linux containers? It seems like the Docker host is configured to run Windows containers, which I think is actually a very small edge case at the moment as nobody really does that.
