yes you can, how do you run you application?
the .exe is called while logging on to terminalserver.
it is possible to call a cmd-script also. But if possible we would prevent the remaining dos-box.
is your application packed as exe?

you may want to try exporting PATH variable with older Java location and then revert it once the application launched.

if it is launched through some batch script, point java binary( executable ) from the other location.
good hint, but no solution.
