Video_Codec_SDK_12.0.16 terminate called after throwing an instance of 'NVENCException'

I have been trying to test the VideoCodeckSDK version 12.0.16 for both decode and encode functionality on a RTX 2070 SUPER.

Note - the samples are being run within a docker container running using nvidias image

As well the following is passed as environment variables.

Furthermore, the samples are functioning as expected when using the decode examples.
However the encode samples, specifically the AppEncCuda sample fails on NvEncApi instantiation.

I am seeing the NvEncodeAPIGetMaxSupportedVersion function return a value of 0 to the version parameter. With the current version being calculated as 192. This causes the application to terminate due to the version being less current version.

This function is called in the provided sample NvEncoder.cpp and executed in the LoadNvEncApi function.

From my investigation, the CUDA and GPU Drivers are all correct based on the documentation.

Images are attached for reference. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
