OpenShift - crc setup command (CodeReady Containers)

The crc setup command can be used to setup OpenShift CodeReady Containers. If the crc setup command returns an error, you may want to run the crc cleanup command before running the crc setup command again.

The first time the crc setup command is run, the hidden .crc directory is created. The hidden .crc directory will be in your users home directory. For example, if john.doe home directory is C:\Users\john.doe, the hidden .crc directory will be:
