I don't remember any discussion about using Docker with Ranorex. Since Ranorex solution is msbuild-compatible, you need to find a way to use msbuild with docker. Check for example this blog post:

Please add these details to your questions:
  • Ranorex Snapshot. Learn how to create one >here<
  • Ranorex xPath of problematic element(s)
  • Ranorex version
  • OS version
  • HW configuration

You will most likely ONLY be able to build on Docker. Docker does not include a realized desktop for Windows, which is required for execution of automated functional UI tests like Ranorex.
