Filebeat autodiscover: When running on windows filebeat can not be started

On windows when adding configuration for autodiscover filebeat can not be started and there is the following error appears:

Exiting: error in autodiscover provider settings: error during connect: Get http://%2Fvar%2Frun%2Fdocker.sock/v1.22/containers/json?limit=0: dial tcp: lookup /var/run/docker.sock: no such host

I believe it should not use unix socket but instead try to connect via tcp on windows?

Filebeat.yml has the following:

      - type: docker        
          - condition:
                docker.container.image: app
              - type: docker
                  - "${}"
                scan_frequency: 10s

Docker version 18.06.1-ce, build e68fc7a
Filebeat version: 6.4.2

Filebeat is running as windows executable (filebeat.exe)

I found the answer in Cannot connect to the Docker daemon
