This says, stunnel is found and started by the system, but stunnel
does not find stunnel.conf.  Maybe it doesn't correctly determine it's
own location in relation to the working directory.

You might try to specify stunnel.conf on the command
line, e.g.

  MyProcID = Shell("stunnel\stunnel stunnel\stunnel.conf")


  MyProcID = Shell("stunnel\stunnel .\stunnel.conf")

or something along those lines.
