Hello Steve,

Could you specify how stunnel reports this error?
Seems to be a problem with permissions to the directory.

It works for me:
 >stunnel.exe C:\temp\stunnel.conf

stunnel logs:
2018.10.18 11:09:25 LOG5[main]: Reading configuration from file 
2018.10.18 11:09:26 LOG5[main]: Configuration successful

Best regards,
