Have a look for jre.exe. Pre-1.2 there were two JVM's, jre.exe and java.exe, with jre intended for end users, and java intended for developers. So java.exe was only included with the JDK.
From 1.2 on, it was decided that only one was needed and jre was dropped, and java.exe was distribute to both developers and end-users.

(I believe) Windows 2000 comes with Microsoft JVM jview.exe.
