Shrink wrap an OWIN self hosted service for easy deployment by endusers RRS feed

  • Question

  • What's the correct forum for this question?  Can you move my thread there?

    We currently have a shrink wrapped exe Delphi program that wraps an MSAccess database.  We currently use the sminstall installer (but are not married to it).

    We need to add a simple REST server/service on top of the access db and we need to make that service "shrink wrapped" and easy to deploy for our users (without technical support).  The users have Android tablets with custom software that use the rest services.

    Our plan is to use OWIN self hosted server and wrap it with a service and we understand how to write that code.


    How do we shrink wrap and package the owin self hosted service for easy deployment so that all the networking is setup to properly expose the rest services outside the windows box.  How do we setup the intranet firewalls automatically in the deployment installer etc?
