aeproject installation on windows

We are facing the problem described in the image below after downloading docker for windows

We then tried installing docker with npm using npm install docker which still gave lots of errors. What can be done?


Hey @aeternityekiti,

What version of windows are you using? What is the version of npm and nodejs also ?

There are limitations for docker on Windows version other than PRO. This is due to some virtualizations.
Here is a thread that can give you more information:

However, you can install docker-toolbox, it is described here:

Aeproject, supports using docker-toolbox.



Thanks @martingrigorov.chain, we will get back to you soonest

Documentation Suggestion

Hello @yani.chain, this is to suggest to create a full documentation on Sophia and State Channels, just like the way AEproject was well documented at

Lastly, Thanks to @martingrigorov.chain for the docker toolbox solution.


Hello, in the installation turorial for windows, install Docker for windows is needed. However, to install Docker for windows, your windows system must be windows 10 pro or enterprise version 10586. Otherewise, you can install “docker toolbox for windows” for older windows systems. Since I believe most users’ system will be win10 home, it will be best for users to install “docker toolbox"

Please is there a way to send ae tokens from the address that deployed the contract to the person presently using the contract(an end-user) in Sophia?

Hello @hanssv.chain

Can you assist here?

To rephrase: “can a contract send AE tokens from an arbitrary address?” No, of course you cannot. The contract can only send tokens from its own account.

If you want to redistribute tokens from another account in a contract, you first need to move the tokens to the contract. Either by spending to the contract, or by attaching an amount when the contract is created.


Hello everyone we have being facing an issue with the nodes for a while now.

What needs to be done?

Hey @emmanueljet, there was a problem yesterday but it’s all working as intended today. Please try again and let us know.



Hello again, both Testnet and FireEditor has been having problems in deploying of contract for a while now. It’s either it takes time to deploy or the deployment fails.

Please any update on this?

@erik.chain @albena.chain

Hey @nikitafuchs.chain can you provide an update on the FireEditor, please?

Thanks for pointing out this issue, I’ve noticed it, too, and thought it was the old public testnet node’s fault, but the new one is behaving strangely, too. I’m on this right now, sorting out what’s wrong. Shouldn’t take long, hang on.


Fixed ! Please give it a try. There is an issue with the testnet nodes, we’ve put a quick fix in place, some transactions can take a little longer now, but shouldn’t happen too often.


Hello @nikitafuchs.chain!!

tuple data type gives Unbound type_error when added to a contract.

Hey, sorry to hear you’ve got issues, can you

  1. select the lines containing the issue (make it at least 2 please, even if the issue is only in 1)
  2. right click -> share contract and selection

and post the Link here ?
