    Yes it is possible. For that you have to use Applocker policy on Windows Sever. But I am not sure that will this be available in your version of Windows Server. It is recommended for Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2 and it supports Windows Server 2003 R2. This a new added feature for Windows 7 and Windows Windows Server 2008 R2. This feature allows you to set restrictions on access to certain applications according to the user. There are three options to create a rule under AppLocker. First is the Publisher, for applications with a digital signature of the publisher. Second is Path to a file or directory (if a directory is selected, the rule applies to all files in the directory). And third is File Hash, this option creates a rule for unsigned applications (with no digital signature).
