I'm attempting to ninject ApiControllers in an Azure worker role. I've previously accomplished ninjection with the same controllers in an asp.net mvc 5 / web api 2 project in the same solution. Another non ninjected test controller in this WorkerRole project work and serve expected results.
While attempting to add the NuGet package Ninject.Web.WebApi.OwinHost (version 3.2.x) it looks like that package is ?erroneously? requiring a Ninject version ≥ 184.108.40.206 && < 220.127.116.11
Install-Package Ninject.Web.WebApi.OwinHost -ProjectName WorkerRole1 Install-Package Ninject.Web.WebApi.OwinHost -Pre -ProjectName WorkerRole1 Install-Package Ninject.Web.WebApi.OwinHost -Version 3.2.0 -ProjectName WorkerRole1 Install-Package Ninject.Web.WebApi.OwinHost -Version 3.2.1-unstable-002 -ProjectName WorkerRole1
I was able to successfully add Ninject.Web.WebApi.SelfHost, however I believe I need the owin flavor and SelfHost didn't appear to install NinjectWebCommon.cs or equivalent. I don't know where to wire up ninject to the owin self host in the worker role once I am successful at including the OwinHost. I'm assuming it will be scaffold-ed in.

Probably unrelated however in checking versions of installed package in the WorkerRole I note that a number of packages are IIS specific. Are these needed in an Azure WorkerRole Owin self host? And specifically for Microsoft.AspNet.WebApi.SelfHost I see the following notation yet I do have Microsoft.AspNet.WebApi.OwinSelfHost installed.
This is a legacy package for hosting ASP.NET Web API within your own process (outside of IIS). Please use the Microsoft.AspNet.WebApi.OwinSelfHost package for new projects.
