Problems with Windows installation process


Hello all,

i did everything similar to the installation explanation:

But get the error message which is attached (No containers to start):

docker-compose -f docker-compose.yml -f docker-compose.nodeodm.yml start || docker-compose -f docker-compose.yml -f docker-compose.nodeodm.yml up --scale node-odm=1
Starting db … failed
Starting broker … failed
Starting worker … failed
Starting node-odm … failed
Starting webapp … failed
No containers to start
Creating network “odm-git_default” with the default driver
Pulling node-odm (opendronemap/nodeodm:)…
latest: Pulling from opendronemap/nodeodm

Do i have to start docker additionally (Docker Desktop is running). Can you help me please?

Thanks for your help!

Hi Obi,

No containers to start is a warning, not an error. 3 lines down where it says latest: Pulling from opendronemap/nodeodm it is downloading the containers you need. This can take a while, so do this on the fastest connection you can, and be patient.

Welcome to the community!


Good point, my internet connection is very slow. So i just wait some more time.
Thank you @smathermather-cm!

I am new to ODM, something similar is happening to me; in the end it seems “unauthorized: authentication required”
Can someone help me?WebODM

rather than use the docker-compose.yml … comomand I would download from github using gitgui then in gitbash run ./ This process is documented in step 4 in this It a pretty big download so will take a while
