With a total of over 300000 downloads, NavContainerHelper is no more. As of this weekend, NavContainerHelper cannot be used to create containers anymore. There has been a lot of blog posts here on my blog and others that indicated that this day would come and now it is here… – all specific images are gone and with those all the “old” generic images, which was used by NavContainerHelper.
I will contact PowerShell Gallery to get the entry removed.
RIP NavContainerHelper, Long Live BcContainerHelper.
Shift to BcContainerHelper
The recipe for changing from NavContainerHelper to BcContainerHelper goes here:
- Remove all containers (Get-NavContainers | Remove-NavContainer)
- Uninstall all versions of NavContainerHelper (UnInstall-Module NavContainerHelper -allversions)
- Restart PowerShell and check that NavContainerHelper is gone (else repeat step 2)
- Reset Docker to factory settings (to remove all images)
- Remove c:\ProgramData\NavContainerHelper
- Install BcContainerHelper (Install-Module BcContainerHelper -force)
Hope this helps
I’ll be the first to say I don’t follow this as closely as I should, and like many I knew this was coming, but did I miss an official end of life date?
February 26th was the day where the generic images disappeared – around 100Tb of NAV and BC images was cleaned up.
What I mean is, did I miss the official announcement within the last few months that February 26th was the drop dead date to convert builds over?
Ahh – well there hasn’t been an actual drop dead date, there has been a number of posts, tweets etc. and even the latest NavContainerHelper does print out a warning: please change.
The thing that made this stop working was that on Friday, the images was deleted – a deletion I ordered a month ago.
