I'm trying to test the new docker support in vagrant 1.6. I'm on windows and I've setup my vagrant file but when I run "vagrant up --provider=docker" I get the following:

Bringing machine 'default' up with 'docker' provider...
==> default: Docker host is required. One will be created if necessary...
default: Vagrant will now create or start a local VM to act as the Docker
default: host. You'll see the output of the `vagrant up` for this VM below.

The executable 'bsdtar' Vagrant is trying to run was not
found in the %PATH% variable. This is an error. Please verify
this software is installed and on the path.
