  • Ulf,

    This is currently not possible - CasablancaHost110.exe runs as a console app. There are no technical limitations in Casablanca that would make it impossible - but, if can ask you, why would you not want to use the IIS?

  • Thanks for your prompt answer,

    Currently, I am more or less looking at configuration alternatives. The solution I am looking at would in certain cases be running on a single machine (client and server on the same machine together with some hardware interfaces) and the prefered OS in this installation is a client-OS to minimize license costs. I will have a closer look at IIS licensing regarding client-OS. In larger (client/server) installations we will be using a server-OS and IIS. 

    Thanks for your answer!
