How do I run an applet in Internet Explorer without JRE installed?

I created several Java class file which are applets and corresponding html files to test them.  I am able to test them in the applet viewer, and even on Internet Explorer with Java installed; however, I can't get them to run on a windows xp machine without Java JRE installed.  The version of IE is 6.0.  I was told that the VM in IE can run Java Applets, but that doesn't seem to be the case so far.  I like to verify this with some expert on this, or am I doing something wrong in the IE settings.  Any ideas or suggestions?  Thanks.

A lot of XP machines shipped with absolutely no java at all...  As part of the "Microsoft/Sun fight of 2002/2003"...

I think you will have to install the plugin

That is, assuming Java1.1 applets don't work either in the IE window...

Try:  http://www.things.demon.co.uk/invade

That's a java 1.1 applet that works on the default IE JVM (if the version of IE you are using was shipped with one)

You can use the Virtual Machine of Microsoft, but it's not a really good thing because it's not a JVM but a MS-VM.
I suggest to install a JRE and use it on the XP machine.

try compiling your code using the option "-target 1.1"

well the problem u r facing is that lack of Java virtual machine
well this  problem can be solved by installing JDK1.4 or higher
this JDK has includes java virtual machine .
and also make sure that u have enabled Java from the Tools-->Advanced tab.
