open up to whom? I'm not sure I like the combination of "windows app"
and "opened up to the internet", really...
but assuming that you're aware of the issues involved, and want a
light-weight HTTP server for Windows, this one's pretty nice:
there's also apache, of course, and a bunch of others, including several
Python solutions (more or less pre-packaged). but the "open up" part
still sounds a bit risky. maybe you could turn things around, and let
the application "push" data to your server instead?
