Installing only Docker CLI


If i have the docker host running on a linux server and i want to access it from my windows vdi, is there a way i can install only the docker CLI in my windows server (not to install the complete docker exe) so that i can access the daemon thorugh tcp. This is because the new licensing restricts the docker on windows usage and i still want to access it from wiindows ( not through vs code also :slight_smile: slight_smile: )
