Hi,
I have a very simple html page that loads an embedded object.
It works great in FF and shows nothing in IE.

<html>

<head>


</head> 


<body>

<object style="">

<embed style="movie" width=100% height=98% src="http://picasna.com/widget/gallery.swf" FlashVars="xmlPath=picasna.com/widget/xml/&an=PlacesIVeBeenPicturesITook&ps=1024&un=effyl01&ts=163&cpad=20&tpad=20&cscheme=0&bt=0&ct=1&nick=1"
type="application/x-shockwave-flash"
allowscriptaccess="always"
allowfullscreen="true">
</embed>


</object>


</body>




</html>

I tested the code and it worked fine for me in IE 7.

Works for me in IE 8, but I had to un-block activeX scripts.
Could that be your problem ?

I believe there are different versions of shockwave for IE and FF. Check to see if you have the IE plugin.

Always embed your flash object with swfobject2.2. Need to just fill out all html boxes that will gives you the proper embed code to use in all browsers.
