Docker-Compose Up Isn't Recognized


I’m now working on this course and the tutorial said to run docker-compose up in the terminal. (See minute 00:47 in the video.)

However, when I ran it in my Windows terminal, it said that docker-compose is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

How do I get it to work?

Thank you very much! :slight_smile:

Have you installed docker?

@CryptoBeliever no I don’t think so. How do I do it?

Okay, thanks @CryptoBeliever, I’ll have a look tomorrow morning. :smiley:

Hi @CryptoBeliever, I tried installing Docker from Docker Hub and created an account there, but when I installed it failed because it required Windows 10 Pro or Enterprise version 14393 to run.

I updated my Windows PC to see if that helped but it didn’t. What do I do now?

Thanks for your time and trouble.

Here’s a screenshot of it:

You need to install docker with docker toolbox

Then install docker-compose


@jtey1 I installed Docker with Docker Toolbox but I’m a little confused with how to install docker-compose.

Also in the documentation, does it mean the Windows PowerShell? (Screenshot below.)

Oh. It says that docker compose already comes with the docker toolbox install. So you do not need to install it. Just run a command prompt or powershell and see if you can run docker-compose

Yes. :+1:

Thanks @jtey1 for your help and time! :smile:
