Issue/Introduction

Register_outputfile on Windows Agent requires user login even when script says not to

Steps to reproduce
1) Create a job on Windows agent
2) Find a file on the drive - for example C:\temp\test.txt and C:\temp\test1.txt
3) Add script lines:
    :register_outputfile "C:\temp\test.txt", "N"
    :register_outputfile "C:\temp\test1.txt", "Y"
4) Run the job
5) Go to Last Report and choose "Directory" from Reports dropdown

Expected behavior: 
test.txt should show Require User's Login not checked
test1.txt should show Require Users's Login checked

Actual behavior:
Both files show "Requires User's Login" (and do require a login)
