Increase memory: In order to make MsViz work correctly it is recommended to increase it's available memory to at least 4 GB. You can change the available memory from the Docker Preferences under the section General. To make MsViz run smoother you are also advised to increase the number of CPUs to at least 2.
Windows 8 or older
In case you are using a Windows older then version 10, you have to install the latest Docker Toolbox.
Increase memory: When using the Docker Toolbox you can increase the memory to 4GB manually by typing the following commands from the Docker Quickstart Terminal. This command also allocates 2 CPUs:
docker-machine rm default docker-machine create -d virtualbox --virtualbox-memory 4096 --virtualbox-cpu-count 2 default
