Just a note on the installer, it didn't seem to upgrade the installed 
service settings.

Here are the steps I took:

Stopped Stunnel service ( c:\stunnel\stunnel-4.11.exe )

Ran installer and pointed at c:\stunnel

Started Stunnel service.

Systray > right click stunnel > About:  shows stunnel 4.11

To remedy this

Open command prompt in installation directory:


Uninstall current service ( change for your version ):

c:\stunnel\stunnel-4.11.exe -uninstall

Install new service

c:\stunnel\stunnel.exe -install
