PF is now able to recover from the state of missing configuration file. Beside this change, there is newly added support of setting the config file location through environmental variable BCV_PWF_CONFIG_FILE_PATH. If set and the file at this path exists, it is used. Otherwise there is used default location at c:\CzechIdM\PasswordFilter\etc\PasswordFilterConfig.cfg.

Thank you for your review.
The encoding troubles are quite common on Win environment. One has to be very careful when editing a text file especially when using standard notepad on Win server. Using notepad++ or some other tool which is able to ensure better character encoding control is strongly recommended. The rule is simple: always ensure utf8 encoding of the configuration file.
