I am trying to run JRE 1.5.0_22 and the latest JRE-7u51.
I have installed both and can go into the Java control panel and disable which ever version I'm not using.  
Unfortunately when I disable the new version and try to launch the website and use the old version of Java the website doesn't work.

I ended up giving the person 2 PC's and installing the different versions of java on the 2 PC's.  This was the quickest and most reliable way for me to resolve the issue.

Since I had limited time to resolve this issue and an extra PC available, this was my solution.
