error invalid windows mount type: 'bind' on Windows 10 docker build of Windows container


I just installed the latest Windows 10 Pro 20H2. After installing Docker Desktop and switching it for Windows containers, it asked me to do the following

Enable-WindowsOptionalFeature -Online -FeatureName $("Microsoft-Hyper-V", "Containers") -All

After this was done, my PC restarted and all seem good. Then I saved the Dockerfile below in an empty directory under my Documents. I build this Dockerfile with success in a CI system before, but I want to build in my machine for quicker development cycle.


RUN powershell -NoLogo -NoProfile -Command \
    netsh interface ipv4 show interfaces ; \
    netsh interface ipv4 set subinterface 18 mtu=1460 store=persistent ; \
    netsh interface ipv4 show interfaces ; \
    Set-ExecutionPolicy Bypass -Scope Process -Force; iex ((New-Object System.Net.WebClient).DownloadString('')) ; \
    choco install -y --no-progress git --params "/GitAndUnixToolsOnPath" ; \
    choco install -y --no-progress 7zip ; \
    Remove-Item C:\ProgramData\chocolatey\logs -Force -Recurse ;

I want to build this Dockerfile, so on the directory that contains it, in Powershell I typed:

docker build .

But I got the error:

What is this error invalid windows mount type: 'bind' ?

docker --version
Docker version 19.03.13, build 4484c46d9d`

I also followed the docs here: but still got the same invalid windows mount type: 'bind' error.



In docker settings, make sure to have buildkit set to false as below:

  "features": {
    "buildkit": false

After this is applied and successfully restarted, the build should proceed.

In the docs, it’s currently mentioned BuildKit is a feature "only supported for building Linux containers" :

Unfortunately in a fresh install it’s value defaults to true and doesn’t change to false when switching to Windows Containers.
