You just need to set the appropriate environment variable:

  1. close your current cmd shell/terminal;
  2. press Win + R, type setx CV_CONFIG "%userprofile%\.cv.json" and press Enter;
  3. reopen the shell, goto your project's directory and test with civix civicrm:ping -vvv.

I gave further explanations about the reason in this answer.


Had the same issue, realized the module was actually created but with incomplete information in the "info.xml" file in the module.
Updated the content of the file and activated the extension from Administer --> system settings --> extension
