Yes, tested on a Windows 7 SP1 machine. I'll do some testing on a few older
windows based VM's over the next week and fix an issues that show up.

Thanks, Jeremy!

I assume you tested this on Windows?

I've uploaded the C# code for the distro tool to the "fswstartscript" git
repo on emerald1. The binary it builds must be placed in a folder with two
sub-folders, one called Installers that includes the python 2.7 installer
and the other called site-packages which includes all of the python
packages required to run the fsw servers.

In order to make it easier for others I've already compiled the required
files (including a win32 binary build of the distro tool) and created an
archive for it. You can download it here:

The C# code is windows specific and requires .NET framework 2.0 which is
available for machines running windows XP SP2 or higher.

A small gotcha is that windows 7 and 8 will fail to bind on port 80
unless the program is run in administrator mode and the method being used
to currently does not support this option yet. In other words run the
front-end server on another port like 8080.
