### docker-compose

#### Docker Toolbox Windows - Invalid volume specification

EDIT: The problem is the COMPOSE_CONVERT_WINDOWS_PATHS environment variable isn't getting set. I tried adding it to the Dockerfile and to a .env file but its not being set. I can't set any new environment variables. Its like its building it from a cached Dockerfile.
I was running docker-composer up after deleting the container, but this didn't recreate a new container, even when adding --force-recreate, it created the container from the old Dockerfile. So I ran docker build ./ instead, and it built a new container, it reinstalled all the packages, and it said that it was setting the new environment variables, but in the finished container, when I check kinematic, I see the new environment variables aren't set. But all of the old environment variables that were set when I built the container for the first time, they're all set. I don't know why this is happening, why I can't create a new container from the updated Dockerfile.
I've found a number of threads about this error, it happens when trying to mount a volume in Windows docker-tools. When I run docker-compose up, I get this error:
ERROR: for web Cannot create container for service web: Invalid bind mount spec "C:\\path\\to\\project:/app:rw": Invalid volume specification: 'C:\path\to\project:/app:rw'
[31mERROR[0m: Encountered errors while bringing up the project.
In the docker-compose file I have this:
volumes:
- ./:/app
I tried setting this environment variable:
COMPOSE_CONVERT_WINDOWS_PATHS=1
to 1, as that worked for some people in another thread but its not working in this case. I tried adding an absolute path in linux like format:
volumes:
- /c/path/to/project:/app
and I get this error:
ERROR: for web Cannot create container for service web: create \c\path\to\project: "\\c\\path\\to\\project" includes invalid characters for a local volume name, only "[a-zA-Z0-9][a-zA-Z0-9_.-]" are allowed
Notice it reversed the forward slashes. Changing:
ENV COMPOSE_CONVERT_WINDOWS_PATHS=0
to 0 like that didn't change anything.
If I give a Windows format absolute directory, I get the first error again. Both of those errors, I get them if I point to a directory that doesn't exist.
Has anyone here figured out a way to resolve this?
