Description:
While trying to open the configuration file(Server->option file), I get the error:

============
UnicodeDecodeError: 'charmap' codec can't decode byte 0x9d in position Y: character maps to <undefined>
============

How to repeat:
In your my.ini add a comment like:
======

# you must specify a unique server ID for each replication server, in the
# range from 1 to 2^32 − 1. “Unique” means that each ID must be different

======

Then open the option file.

Suggested fix:
Those characters are valid and mysqld can deal with them,
Workbench should also allow it.
