Actually I'm using IE API for my application to view the FLV page. The funny thing is, i have 5 unit of PC can't view this page, but when i tested with other PC it was working fine. So I would like to know is there any settings or patches missing here?

Oh, you can be sure about that.
I don't think that some settings are missing, but is definitely some patch, or different OS, Office or IE version (subversion).
You should deeply inspect software configuration on the PC that your application worked fine and try to catch the differences.
In my personal experience IE API was not working because because of spyware in IE (or maybe a virus), and because of very tighten protection (Antivirus). After formating and reinstalling everything my App was working fine.

Good luck.

And of course maybe the problem is not in IE but in Macromedia Flash Player or in your FLV player.
