@ahmetalpbalkan We are moving to a policy where we don't document other project's installers or package manager installs. There are several reasons for this:

  • It puts a burden on us to test
  • It puts a burden on us to update
  • Makes our installation docs overly complex

Happy to put a mention in a references section.

If you have Docker hosts running and if you don't wish to do a Boot2Docker installation, you can install the docker.exe using unofficial Windows package manager Chocolately. For information on how to do this, see (instructions at chocolatey.org).
