I would rather run it under Wine, the application is run from a remote server and I don't want to unnecessarily complicate the situation. Also I really don't want to install a virtual desktop for the sake of one application.

You'd need to run it from the command line with something like:

    wine explorer /desktop=ref,800x600 [name of .exe file]

(Note that I've never actually tried this myself ;-) )
