How to adapt desktop app for new Shopify OAuth 2 process without a web server?

We have a desktop application that links with a user's Shopify Store to download orders into our accounting software.  In the past when the user clicked install app, Shopify redirects the user to our redirect uri where we display the authentication code.   The user then copies the code and enters it into our desktop application where we finish the authentication process.   This has worked for many years, but we are now told that our apps will no longer be able to be installed using this process.

 

We do not have a web server or a web developer.

 

Any suggestions on what we need to do so that we can get our app approved and complete the oauth 2 process?

 

Thanks in advance.

Additional Question - will the oauth process for a desktop application in this video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tx8yzVrBbE4) which uses httpListener and localhost:33337 pass the new Shopify oauth requirements?   

 

Or will we be required to create a webserver?

Did you ever get this question answered. We are looking at doing the same thing.
