A simple solution to the Container Provider problem
Sunday 02, October 2016   |   Post link
While working with Windows containers, I've often faced an error when trying to install the Container Provider package. Some blog posts suggest using the command Install-Package ContainerProvider and others want you to use Install-PackageProvider ContainerProvider. In either case here is a work around in case you see the following error: error Just download the Container Provider package from here: ContainerProvider.zip and unzip the folder in your module path. How do you know your module path?
At the PowerShell prompt, type in $env:PSModulePath and hit ENTER. The output should be something like this:
C:\Users\username\Documents\WindowsPowerShell\Modules;C:\Program Files\WindowsPowerShell\Modules;C:\Windows\system32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\Modules

You can unzip the contents of the ZIP file into any one of these directories. Start up a PowerShell prompt and type in
Get-Module -ListAvailable
You should see the ContainerProvider module as show in the screenshot below:
container-provider There, that's it. You now use the container commands Find-ContainerImage, Save-ContainerImage and Install-ContainerImage. I really don't care anymore which is the correct one - thats the amount of frustration I feel for this right now.
