jvm.dll in registry

I have an application that I compiled under jdk1.2. Then I made an exe file from it. Since then, I installed the jdk1.3. Now when I try to run my exe I get this message:
"This machine's registry has a valid entry for jdk1.2
However, the jvm.dll does not exist where the registry says it does. Reinstall jdk1.2 or edit your registry to point to your Java binary directory."
I am not having any other trouble compiling, it is only when I convert to exe and try to run it that this happens. I do still have jdk1.2 on my machine, but only using 1.3 version as that is what my PATH is pointing to. Can someone tell me how to get this working again? Do I need to update some registry file? If so, how? In detail please..... Thank you very much in advance!!!
