You can use a simple webpage with a little perl cgi to do the
trick. I used "File Upload" from http://www.terminalp.com/scripts/
for ages on http://www.csn.ul.ie/~caolan/docs/libwmf-Demo.html
to provide a wmf to gif converter, easy to upload and file with it.
Anyone can upload with a webbrowser
Therefore user end works everywhere, server is simple perl cgi so
works with apache on anything. Easy peasy.
