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?
