I recorded all the objects on the mercury tours website, but in the repository the browser object is not recognised, instead qtp saved the object as window. i was following the steps int he tutorial to create object repositories. please suggest if i need to change any settings
You can "Uncheck" the other add-in checkboxes, just have only the Web-addin checkbox selected. Then launch the web application and spy on the application. Check how does QTP identify the browser obj, does it identify a Window or a Browser Object.
Also in the Record and Run settings, check the " Checkbox Selection" that you have made for Windows application.
