Allow FIPS to be enabled

Description

some environments for security reasons must have the FIPS windows setting set to Enabled due to various of reasons or the business mode.

In most applications, if an application is not FIPS compatible, it can be used by creating a .config file and putting the following in:

<runtime>
<enforceFIPSPolicy enabled="false"/>
</runtime><

However, when putting this in the proper format, the application still does not ruin due to FIPS and then closes. FIPS check is hard coded in. The check should be soft coded as the .config file will allow the use of non Fips crypto's, even if Windows as a whole does not allow it.

Environment
