  • A limited set of images are available for Windows Containers. These can be found by running ‘docker search microsoft’.

  • Currently, the images on the Microsoft public Docker Hub registry are only based on Linux, so you will not be able to pull those in a windows containers host. However, as Neil mentioned, we do have a private registry with windows images that can be accessed.
