Error 'Error occurred : dial unix /var/run/docker.sock: connect: not supported by windows'

Hello, I am new to networking and computer design. I am currently working on a Cisco DevNet learning track in which I am using Docker and ioxclient to package an application. When I use the provided code ioxclient docker package -a somebody.iox-test:latest C:\Users\luke\desktop\work ., I am given the output text,

It seems that everything works until the last line. I don’t know where my error lies, I have the latest installation of both Docker and ioxclient installed. Thank you for helping.
