I have set JAVA_HOME and put JAVA_HOME/bin to PATH variable.

But Internet Explorer still doesn't support Java applets. Why?

that was no such option ... in fact i don't install jdk, but extract one jdk from zip file – hugemeow Oct 14 '12 at 2:15
For IE to display applets, you need the Java plugin installed which comes with the JRE. If you have some sort of portable install, it's probably not gonna work in IE (you can use the appletviewer though). Also, you should have mentioned your non-standard setup details in the question. – Karan Oct 14 '12 at 2:18
