Put explicit instructions on the page instructing the user how to run the program.

I'm serious. There is no means for you to remotely execute a program on the client's machine.

What a mess things would be if such egregious breaches of security were allowed.

You might look into signed applets or Java Web Start as alternative solutions that may or may not fit your needs.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
