Hey @hamedhomaee 
Users have managed to use their own license. In general it is something that is not recommended and not officially supported and shadow might not be able to help you in some cases, but it works. 

Thanks @Phobos  for your reply. 

If I can upgrade it to Pro version, I can use virtualization and install Docker on the Windows.

@hamedhomaee Shadow does sadly not support virtualization of any sort. It is not possible to run virtual machines / docker.

@hamedhomaee Shadow is already virtualized, and nested virtualization is disabled.
