Previously, calling Windows agent using full path may produce weird results.

Errouneously Windows agent used case-sensitive comparison for filepaths, which in Windows are case insensitive. For example such command line "c:\program files (x86)\checkmk\service\checmk_mk_agent.exe" test didn't work correctly. But command line which uses correct letter case "C:\Program Files (x86)\checkmk\service\checmk_mk_agent.exe" test worked fine.

With this release the problem had been eliminated. You may use any letter case in the path to the Windows agent.
