Config File doesn't work

Good evening.

I'm trying to run Logstash for the first time. I already downloaded and runned with success ElasticSearch and Kibana.

I created the config file named "logstash-simple.conf" following the istructions on the official tutorial of Logstash, but when i open the prompt command and i try to launch the string "...bin>logstash -f logstash-simple.conf" i obtain the following messages:

"No config files found in path {:path=>"C:/Users/Valerio/Desktop/work/Logstash/logstash-7.12.1/bin/logstash-simple.conf"}"


"Logstash stopped beacuse of an error (SystemExit). "

I specify that my logstash-simple.conf file is positioned in the "bin" directory of Logstash, and the content of that file is exactly the same of the tutorial:

input { stdin { } }
output {
elasticsearch { hosts => ["localhost:9200"] }
stdout { codec => rubydebug }

How can i solve my problem?
Thank you.

Either that file does not exist or logstash does not have permissions to read it.

Good morning.

The file is stored in the following path: C:\Users\Valerio\Desktop\work\Logstash\logstash-7.12.1\bin

In particular, i launch the file using the following command:

C:\Users\Valerio\Desktop\work\Logstash\logstash-7.12.1\bin>logstash -f logstash-simple.conf

so the config file should exist. What permission may Logstash need to read it?
