Docker Error: failed to register layer: Error processing tar file(exit status 1): “…msader15.dll.mui: no such file or directory”

I am trying to build my ASP.NET 4.7.2 WEB Services into a docker file, however when I run

docker build -t manufacturing-portal-api:latest .

I get the following error:

failed to register layer: Error processing tar file(exit status 1): link /Files/Program Files/common files/system/ado/en-US/msader15.dll.mui /Files/Program Files (x86)/common files/system/ado/en-US/msader15.dll.mui: no such file or directory=> => sha256:d9e8b01179bfc94a5bdb1810fbd76b999aa52016001ace2d3a4c4bc7065a9601 1.66GB / 1.66GB                     0.0s

This is my docker file

FROM microsoft/dotnet-framework:4.7.2-sdk-windowsservercore-1803 AS build

# copy csproj and restore as distinct layers
COPY *.sln .
COPY WebPortalAPI/*.csproj ./WebPortalAPI/
COPY WebPortalAPI/*.config ./WebPortalAPI/
COPY ./instantclient_11_2 .
ENV PATH=./instantclient_11_2
ENV TNS_ADMIN=./instantclient_11_2/network/admin
RUN nuget restore

# copy everything else and build app
COPY WebPortalAPI/. ./WebPortalAPI/
WORKDIR /app/WebPortalAPI
RUN msbuild /p:Configuration=Release

FROM microsoft/aspnet:4.7.2-windowsservercore-1803 AS runtime
WORKDIR /inetpub/wwwroot
COPY --from=build /app/WebPortalAPI/. ./

Method 1

Your Docker host is likely configured to run Linux containers inside of a VM. To run Windows containers, you need to “Switch to Windows containers” in the Docker menu. Documentation on that is available here.
