New to python/prodigy/jupyterlab

I am trying to launch prodigy in Jupyterlab prodigy extension and I get an error: "localhost refused to connect" when I click the icon for prodigy. I have created a work environment in c-drive and on this environment I don't see jupyterlab-prodigy package. Is this the reason for the error?

Hi! If this error is shown in the Prodigy tab, double-check that the Prodigy server is running. You do need to start Prodigy with the recipe/command you want to use, either via the JupyterLab terminal or in a notebook cell. Once the server is running, you can open it in a tab in your JupyterLab environment.

You can also see an example of how it should all look in the screenshot here:
