Use winget to install some component, but after that the component can't use?

The same thing also happened for docker desktop.

    Hi there,

    Have you joined the Windows Package Manager Insider Program at ?
    The Windows Package Manager ships as a part of the "App Installer". Once it has been installed, you would access it via the command line. Either CMD or Windows Terminal or any other shell you have installed. You should be able to execute winget, and the output displays the version and the default help. As winget is a new feature you might try raising this to Microsoft so that they might come out with a solution.

    You may need to restart the terminal for the Azure CLI to work after installation.

    We did have a bug with installing git, but we believe it's resolved.
