Error: No containers to start

What’s your browser and operating system? (Copy/paste the output of

[Firefox 76 on Windows 10 Pro]

What is the problem?

[After entering the command “./ start” into Git Bash, I get the output below.

Checking for docker… OK
Checking for git… OK
Checking for docker-compose… OK

Using the following environment:

Host: localhost

Port: 8000
Media directory: appmedia

Make sure to issue a ./ down if you decide to change the environment.

What should be the expected behavior?

[I expect WebODM to be accessible in my browser and for a container to be visible on Docker Desktop]

How can we reproduce this? (What steps did you do to trigger the problem? What parameters are you using for processing? Please include multiple screenshots of the problem! If possible please include a copy of your dataset uploaded on Google Drive or Dropbox. Be detailed)

[ Unfortunately, I’m not sure. My Docker Desktop settings are below and I’ve copied the GIT Bash output. If any other information would be useful, please let me know.

So, I recently tried to run ODM from the command prompt window and was able to get it working. I’m not sure if that helps diagnose what’s wrong with my WebODM issue, but I think it suggests that Docker isn’t the problem?
