Has anyone found a solution for this issue?
I am running into the same problem, using the pretty much the same environment except QTP 11 only has QTP_00699, QTP_00709, & QTPWEB_00078 patches installed.
Additional information for my issue....we created/executed tests using WinXP, QTP 9.5, Flex Plugin 3.0, IE 8.0 for the last two years. We ran into a few issues initially, but worked them out, and automation scripts have been running successfully since.
We have now upgraded to Windows 7, QTP 11.0, Flex Plugin 4.5, and IE 9.0...we are encountering the issue of IE crashing when spying on objects or learning objects.
We are able to record, and we are able to replay existing tests...the problem appears to be specifically to Object Spy and object repository.
One additional note, if we run an existing script, then we can use the Object Spy...no crash.
But if we reload the Flex app in the browser and try to use Object Spy without running existing tests first, then IE crashes.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
After continuing to trouble-shoot this issue, looks like I at least found a workaround....but this does appear to be a defect.
Flex Plugin 4.5 contains a configuration file, named FlexPluginLogConfigFile.cfg that allows user to enable logging. File is located in
\Adobe Flex 4.5 Plugin for HP QuickTest Pro\Flex\ directory.
Set LOG_ENABLING to 1.
Start QTP 11 and select Flex and Web addins.
Now when you spy on an object, you will see a slight delay, but QTP will identify the object and IE9 will not crash. Downside, is logging will continue and the log will grow rather quickly.
Not sure if Adobe support reviews this forum, but this does appear to be a defect....the hooking mechanism used to identify object is missing something when using Object Spy or Object Repository is used, and only re-enabled with the logging file.
Hope this helps anyone else frustrated with this issue.
