[stunnel-users] Console-only version for Windows

I use the program as you mentioned here while on a 64-bit Windows 7 OS. I
simply extracted the files to a folder of my choice, modified the
configuration file, opened a command window in this directory without
needing to do so as Admin, and enter this command:  "stunnel.exe conf". it
then runs in the background without need for further attention from me.

You can extract the files yourself to your local machine. AFAICT, stunnel
installer makes no significant changes to the registry other than the Start
menu. You can then setup your batch file to install as a service the first
time if it detects that stunnel is not running as a service, or you can just
tell it to launch minimized so it runs in the toolbar.

I need to distribute a portable zip with stunnel and config files,
with a simple .bat for newbie. I can't ask to install/uninstall an NT
Also, i don't think (not sure) STunnel require administrator
privileges on the machine (if binded on port > 1024).
Install/uninstall services require it.
