hi team 👋 i was troubleshooting a separate issue with rancher desktop, which led me to uninstall and reinstall the application. now, when opening rancher desktop, i'm seeing the error below. I've tried a factory reset, resetting kubernetes, uninstalling/reinstalling again, running rancher desktop as an administrator and restarting my machine to no avail. any ideas what might be causing it? i've attached some of the log files, please let me know if there's any others that would be helpful. cheers!
im on windows, latest version of rancher desktop (v1.7.0)
sometimes after restarting, it's a different error:

Hmm, odd; I see this in the log:
"kubelet exited: failed to run Kubelet: validate service connection: CRI v1 runtime API is not implemented for endpoint \"unix:///run/cri-dockerd.sock\": rpc error: code = Unimplemented desc = unknown service runtime.v1.RuntimeService"
That's weird because I thought we shipped our own
to avoid those issues. Can you try using the
container engine to see if it changes anything? (Not as a fix/workaround, but more as a troubleshooting step.)
