Unable to start nxlog from a custom PATH


I use nxlog as backend with Graylog Sidecar.
When nxlog is installed in the deafult path C:\Program Files (x86)\nxlog\ everything works good.
Now, I need to install nxlog in a different directory (i.e… c:\nxlog) but I cannot make it working.

Here is what I get from the sidecar:

level=error msg="[nxlog] Couldn't execute collector C:\\Program Files (x86)\\nxlog\\nxlog.exe, binary path is not included in `collector_binaries_whitelist' config option." 

My sidecar.yml seems ok to me:

    - name: nxlog
      enabled: true
      binary_path: C:\nxlog\nxlog.exe
      configuration_path: C:\Program Files\Graylog\sidecar\generated\nxlog.conf
    - "C:\\nxlog\\nxlog.exe"

Also, the generated nxlog.conf points to C:\nxlog path

 define ROOT C:\nxlog

What am I missing?

Kind Regards,
