Hi Ela,

I think starting the Docker Quickstart Terminal and the Command Prompt as Administrator would solve the problem.
You can set up these to start as administrator automatically.
(See: https://www.groovypost.com/howto/microsoft/automatically-run-any-application-as-admin-in-windows-7/ )

If not, you can change the permissions for C:\Users\docker. You need to add "Full control" to Users.
(Some help showing how to do it: https://www.addictivetips.com/windows-tips/windows-7-access-denied-permission-ownership/ )
Maybe you need to delete everything in the folder first, as I'm not sure if the files and subfolders inherit this change automatically.

I hope this solves your problem.

Dear Elzbieta,
    I send this reply and your original message to the Fluka-discuss
list and to David Horvath too, so that he can add his comments and
you have his email. Please, keep the messages in the list.
I think that the problem relies in the fact that on Windows 7
Docker cannot use the full virtualization technology Hyper-V, but
it is based on VirtualBox. You should have installed the so-called
Docker Toolbox and not the Docker Community Edition version
(which is for Windows 10): is it correct? The instructions are
at the following link:
Can you run succesfully the hello-world example?
With this version, you should first start the Docker QuickStart Terminal
as Administrator: this initializes Docker and you can close the terminal
when it has finished. Then it is important to work in the /c/Users/docker
directory (the /c/docker is not accessible) and you have to start F4D
with our script run_win10_home.bat(it is named for Windows 10 Home Edition,
but it should work also on Windows 7).
Unfortunately, at the moment I do not have a Windows 7 machine to try:
in any case, make sure you have the latest version of our scripts.
Hope this helps... let us know!
Kind regards,
