Is this possible?

This may be a pretty dumb question... I want to know if there's a way to wrap an existing (uneditable) windows application in such a way that it will run on a web server but be viewed and interacted with by web clients?
We have several CDs with data stored in proprietary formats and their corresponding freely distributable viewer applications - instead of deploying the viewers to every person in my department who might wish to view the data on the CDs I would like some method by which they might be able to access the viewer in a control(?) through IE, kind of like remote desktop or term services.
Note that the viewer itself must essentially run on the server as it maps to the various CD-ROMS.
How hard would this be to implement?
Does my question even make sense?
