    • Windows 7,Windows Docker ToolBox, Docker version 18.03.0-ce, build 0520e24302,Jenkins,Jenkins ver. 2.164.2

      I have installed Docker ToolBox for Windows and Jenkins in my Windows 7 Desktop.I am attempting to create a Jenkins Job which will list down docker images available. However, in doing so I am getting the following error :-
      Started by user

      Building on master in workspace C:\Program Files (x86)\Jenkins\workspace\Docker
      [Docker] $ cmd /c call C:\Windows\TEMP\jenkins1754863637345314489.bat

      C:\Program Files (x86)\Jenkins\workspace\Docker>docker images
      error during connect: Get
      : open //./pipe/docker_engine: The system cannot find the file specified. In the default daemon configuration on Windows, the docker client must be run elevated to connect. This error may also indicate that the docker daemon is not running.

      C:\Program Files (x86)\Jenkins\workspace\Docker>exit 1
      Build step 'Execute Windows batch command' marked build as failure
      Finished: FAILURE
      I have tried adding the jenkins user in "docker users" group but I could not find the group in "Local Users and Groups" in Computer Management. Please refer the image below :- 

      My target is ultimately creating a CI pipeline in Jenkins where I need to build my docker image and push it to docker hub. But I am stuck in this phase and unable to proceed.

      Please note that my Jenkins is a standalone installation and not a Docker Container

      Below is my Docker version :- Docker version 18.03.0-ce, build 0520e24302

      I am relatively new to Docker and Jenkins and is unable to proceed due to the above issue. Any help is immensely appreciated.
