Run gradle without native libraries

Is there a way to run Gradle without causing it to load the DLLs (in Windows)? In some corporate environments, systems are often locked down to prevent unknown executable code from running. Applocker and Bit9, for instance. For me, Gradle still works, but it causes exception reports when it starts. I tried removing the DLLs but Gradle fails to run without them present. I think that the DLLs are native code for the gradle daemon, correct? It would be an improvement if gradle did not fail if the DLLs were not present, like Tomcat does with its optional native libraries.
