Docker - err: exec: "docker-credential-desktop": executable file not found in $PATH, out: ``


Docker has revolutionized the way we package, distribute, and deploy applications. However, like any other technology, it is not immune to errors and issues. One such error that I encountered recently while working with Docker on my Mac was the "error getting credentials - executable file not found" error. In this blog post, I will share my experience with this error and provide a solution that worked for me.

The Error:

When attempting to build a Docker image or perform a Docker login, I encountered the following error message:

openjdk:17: error getting credentials - err: exec: "docker-credential-desktop": executable file not found in $PATH, out: ``

Error saving credentials: error storing credentials - err: exec: "docker-credential-desktop": executable file not found in $PATH, out: `` 


The error message suggests that the Docker daemon was unable to locate the "docker-credential-desktop" executable file in the $PATH environment variable. This executable is responsible for retrieving Docker credentials and authentication.

Caused by: java.lang.UnsupportedOperationException: PermittedSubclasses requires ASM9

After attempting to upgrade Spring Boot from version 2.7.3 to version 3.0.2, I encountered this error. I spent a few hours searching on Google to try to figure out the cause of the error. Eventually, I realized that the error was related to the version of Gradle that I was using. At the time, I had been using Gradle version 7.3.3. However, once I updated to Gradle version 8.0.1, the error was successfully resolved.

I also updated distributionUrl in gradle-wrapper.properties as shown below

Note - After above changes i removed .idea folder and restarted my intellij
