I have a strange problem with QTP (9.2). I have a script which installs our client app on a test machine. Basically the TC drives the UI installshield installer.
Problem : During the installation, the installer registers some .exe files as services. When running manually that should finish with in 10 secs or so.
But when I launch the installer from QTP and run it this services registration of each service takes around 10 mins to finish.
During the install If I close QTP still the 1st registration takes 10 mins but after that next service registrations in sequence all finish normally with in 10 secs.
This happens either I launch the installer from QTP or even if I launch it manually when QTP is open on that machine.
It looks like some resources are getting locked up (by qtp) which are required for service registration and it takes 10 mins or so to time out before the resources get cleared.
I donít see this problem when I run the installer in silent mode.
Now my problem I donít know how to see what resources are getting locked up by QTP or how to debug the issue.
