A Windows UI application + windows service to use Route53 as a Dynamic DNS provider. 
Application is supposed to be launched on any machine inside network behind one NAT-ing device with one external IP.
It deliberately does not do anything with registry, but stores everything in files.

There is no installer at this point.

.NET framework 4.5
Visual Studio Express C# 2012 (Depends on usage)

2. Unpack
3. run the Route53DDNS.exe from Route53DDNS directory

For service

1. Download archive with binaries from downloads section
2. Unpack
3. Determine where is your .net framework4 directory located
4. Run "cmd" as administartor, change directory to where you unpacked the bundle + Route53DDNSService
5. Inside cmd run c:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\InstallUtil.exe /LogToConsole=true Route53DDNSService.exe"
6. Create Route53DDNSService\config\aws.json with AWS credentials 
	"hostedZoneId": "",
	"awsRegion": "us-east-1"
