Running a docker image on Windows gives the error: oci runtime error: exec: ”bash“: executable file not found in $PATH.

I'm running Docker toolbox on Windows

I've built an image which works properly on my Mac OS but gets bugged on Windows.

When I create a machine and try to run the container from image, I do:

docker run -it myRepo:myTag bash

which gives me the following error:

"Error response from daemon: oci runtime error: exec: "bash": executable file not found in $PATH."

I use the MINGW64 shell.

Does anyone have a soln to this?

Thank you in advance.

I also use MINGW64. This is what I get using nginx as example:

  $docker run -it nginx bash
  cannot enable tty mode on non tty input

I can’t seem to open tty using MINGW64.

But try this:

  $docker run -i nginx bash

Just run ls and it should work inside your container.
