It appears that others have posted similar questions and issues in this discussion forum with no responses, but I'd figure I'd give it a shot anyway since I don't have anything to lose at this point, so any help would be greatly appreciated.
My company just recently migrated one of our QC/QTP 9.2 project to QTP 11. In QTP 9.2 we had the flex add-in for 3.0 installed and were were able to successfully identify objects with Object Spy, record objects and execute our automated GUI tests successfully. In addition we were previously using IE7. Unfortunately I have been experimenting quite a big in trying to get the automation working in our new migrated environment, but have been unsuccessful due to frequent roadblocks and numerous variables. Any attempts to identify objects using QTP's Object Spy on our flex application causes IE9 to crash with a message "Internet Explorer has encountered a problem..." and locks the machine up to the point of needing to be rebooted. Just before the lockup occurs, it appears that Object Spy is attempting to identify the Flex object that I click on or hover over as the object heirarchy displays within Object Spy. I can successfully I dentify objects on a normal web application (i.e. that is not flex-based) without the crash occuring. Here are the details of my current environment.

It appears that the combination of the Flex 3.0 add-in with QTP11 and IE9 is not explicitely mentioned in the compatibility matrix for the Flex QTP 3.0 plug-in, but I was hoping to be able to make this work somehow. Any thoughts or advice pertaining to this would be greatly appreciated.
