Can't create a remote interpreter with Docker-compose

Hello guys i need your help!

I can't configure the remote docker-compose interpreter in PyCharm, I keep getting the following error:

and the corresponding log entry:

2020-08-09 02:45:55,299 [6304130]   WARN - ckaging.InstalledPackagesPanel - The following command was executed:

C:\Program Files\JetBrains\PyCharm 2020.1.3\bin\runnerw64.exe C:\Users\Angel\Downloads\docker-compose-Windows-x86_64.exe -f D:\Archiv\Projects\PycharmProjects\django_with_db\docker-compose.yml -f C:\Users\Angel\AppData\Local\JetBrains\PyCharm2020.2\tmp\docker-compose.override.241.yml run --rm --no-deps web

The exit code: 1

The error output of the command:

Couldn't find `docker` binary. You might need to install Docker:

docker-compose finished with exit code 1


In my case, PyCharm is installed on Windows 10, and Docker and Docker-compose are on a separate server running CentOS and I use the following settings:



At the same time, Docker as a remote interpreter works fine, the problem only concerns the docker-compose.

I don't know if this matter or not, but I want to point out, that since Docker is not installed on a windows host, when I first tried to create a remote interpreter using docker-compose, PyCharm showed a message – can’t find the docker-compose executable. To overcome this, I downloaded the executable for my platform from the official Docker repository and manually specify the path to it:

Whether this is the right solution I don't know, but it's works

I am using the following software versions:

  • Windows 10 build 19041
  • PyCharm Professional 2020.2
  • CentOS Linux release 8.2.2004
  • Docker version 19.03.12, build 48a66213fe
  • docker-compose version 1.26.2, build eefe0d31
