I have tried two different ways and print screened them in the attached Word doc.

If an attachment will not work, please let me know how to send this to you.

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 C:\temp\stunnel.conf ...
2018.10.18 11:09:26 LOG5[main]: Configuration successful
