Can Docker-machine run a Windows Image?

Hello, i’m working in a project in which we have to control some devices using .NET drivers from inside a docker, I can’t communicate to them from a windows container (I have to use a windows container because of the .NET aplications), so i’m trying to use a docker-machine running my original image from the windows container but I get this error:

PS C:\Users\Taper\docker> docker load -i ${PWD}\Images\test02.tar
cannot load windows image on linux

How can I change the OS of the docker-machine from Linux to Windows?
