Problem Installing package io-2.4.10.tar.gz

Gary Dilay
I am having a problem installing the package io-2.4.10.tar.gz on my Windows 10 PC. I am using octave 4.2.1 configured for x86_64-w64-mingw32. When I try to install the package, I get the following error message:

pkg install -verbose io-2.4.10.tar.gz
mkdir (C:\Users\garyw\AppData\Local\Temp\oct-f6xVY6)
untar (io-2.4.10.tar.gz, C:\Users\garyw\AppData\Local\Temp\oct-f6xVY6)

checking for octave-config... D:/Octave-4.2.1/octave-4.2.1/bin/octave-config-4.2.1.exe
checking whether the C++ compiler works... no

pkg: error running the configure script for io.

Can you advise me how I can install package io-2.4.10.tar.gz?

Thank you.
