I think SwishCtl would need to be signed with a digital signature before
you could do that. It may also need some other changes. Maybe someone
else can provide further info.

You need swishctl.dll and libz.dll from your Windows system directory.

Here are some preliminary docs; see the entry for the Init() function:

You'd probably want to use an installation program of some sort. Copy
the DLLs to the Windows system directory, register swishctl.dll somehow
(e.g. "regsvr32 c:\winnt\system32\swishctl.dll"), add your registry
There is C++ source code for an example setup program in the swishctl
CVS repository. Although, using a script-based installer like NSIS
would be easier to customize (and wouldn't require a C++ compiler).

See the indexing config section of the manual:
