    You can set .JAR files to be processed by the Software Restriction Policy through Group Policy.

    The list of file extensions can be found under:
    Computer Configuration->Windows Settings->Security Settings->Software Restriction Policies
    Edit the entry "Designated File Types" and add the "JAR" extension there.

    If you really have to use RMMC, there's a "custom" section under the "All Computers" security policy.
    That will allow you to import a registry script.

    I though .jar files are used by java script? might be worth checking if the pc has other .jar files first.

    JavaScript = .js
    Java = .jar
