To build with habitat directly on Windows and skip the whole docker setup

Having a service account perpetually logged in with RDP is NOT a stable or best practice solution.I have opened a support ticket with docker as well. It would be great if this is resolved within Habitat.

    You can absolutely build habitat packages without docker. In fact the default behavior of hab pkg build on windows is to use a local (non-docker) studio to build.

    The RDP/Svc Acct restriction here sounds like an environmental specific issue. RDP should not be required for a running docker engine. Would like to better understand the details here.
