Using pydsfapi on windows

I am new to Duet. Please forgive me if this question has been answered somewhere...
I am trying to use/modify the python API (pydsfapi) to communicate to my printer (Duet2 WiFi/Ethernet). Since the system has been connected to a PC which running
DuetWebControl, I would like to use the same computer to control the printer instead of using a pi to do it. Because I am working on integrating another sensor to the system, this is the reason I would like to write my own code to control it.
My problems are listed below :
When I connected to the system, instead of using socket.AF_UNIX, I used socket.AF_INET. However, I got the error message for decoding the receiving. (Error message shows below)
File "C:\Users\JB3D - F30-B1\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python37\lib\json\decoder.py", line 337, in decode
obj, end = self.raw_decode(s, idx=_w(s, 0).end())
File "C:\Users\JB3D - F30-B1\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python37\lib\json\decoder.py", line 355, in raw_decode
raise JSONDecodeError("Expecting value", s, err.value) from None
json.decoder.JSONDecodeError: Expecting value: line 1 column 1 (char 0)
Based on the code, it seems the return/receiving message is in JSON format. Is there any more information about this?
Thank you very much!

@kaoshihchuan the following two links will help you understanding the new object model of RepRapFirmware version 3 (RRF3):
In the first link is explained, how the Duet can be accessed and explaining of the json structure.
You should use the current RRF version (today: 3.1.1).
