quickstart issue on windows
# 🌱|help-and-getting-started
I was trying the quickstart(https://docs.garden.io/basics/quickstart) on bonsai/windows with docker-desktop and running into this issue running deploy. Any ideas here?


@abundant-architect-46258 hi kroher! Let me give the quickstart a spin on Windows and get back to you 🚜 🧑‍🌾
Sorry for the delay, @abundant-architect-46258, I run Linux on my work machine and needed to lend my wife's Windows laptop to test. I can confirm that running the latest 0.13.12 release of
works on her machine on Docker Desktop using Docker Desktop's built-in Kubernetes cluster
I tried both with 0.13.8 and 0.13.12 and experienced the same result
I would try and
git pull
the latest
to ensure any odd string interpolation issues have been fixed
The output of
git status
in that repo would also be helpful
Thanks for checking it out! I ended up trying a few things and it ended up that I needed to delete my user .garden directory, then re-install garden. I'm now into some other strange thing where the build is seemingly creating some inaccessable directories/files that I cant remove when I turn things off and reboot. api-build, result, vote, worker are all in this state in the build directory. The errors during build in garden deploy are like this:
Copy code

Hmmm 🤔 can you try and run
garden deploy -l5
and post the logs to a Gist?
Have you tried purging data from the bug icon in Docker Desktop?


I believe that was one of the things I tried in addition to factory resetting docker and a clean checkout. I'll give it a re-try though as well as get some log details when I find some time in the next few days.
@abundant-architect-46258 setting this to resolved: please let us know if you encoutner any more trouble 😺
I ended up getting it working, i think something was up with how i had docker-desktop installed (through chocolatey which i also had to install kind for it to work), uninstalled those, and did a standard docker-desktop install and things worked. I still have some undeletable
directories from whatever weird state things were in, probably from orphaned installs/docker resets or something that clean/purge aren't hitting somehow. Anyway thanks again!
