Hello,
I ve tried to use wcfg.exe but it seems it does not work as stated on your site .
When I type in command prompt wcfg.exe it shows only  a limited number of commands available - see below:

-----------------------------------------------------------------

any other commands showed on your site does not work.
Is the new version limited to these commands only  or it may be something wrong on my computer?
However I tried it on a second computer and it behaves the same.
Also I could not get it to set a password in the WinSSHD password cache, afther I run the command it says  it is done but when I try to login from the client, it does not connect with the password I set.
Please help.
Thanks in advance.

Also I found out that when I try to import setings it will give me this error:
Error processing input at or about line 269:
MemberMapEvaluator: Input 'winAccount ""': This field cannot be left empty

Although the field is not empty...

Well what can I say, if you read the http://www.bitvise.com/wug-wcfg carefully you should come across on the following sentence:

This section will focus on interactive use, specifically when wcfg is started with 'wcfg import settings -i'.

So that's that.

As for the "MemberMapEvaluator: Input 'winAccount ""': This field cannot be left empty". You seem to be adding Windows account there, and well you obviously cannot add a new Windows account with an empty account name (winAccunt). I think you'll figure this out easily when you'll run wcfg in interactive mode.

You can also reach wcfg interactive screen in WinSSHD Settings window - Query tab.
