Actually I analysed one possible reason and that is when we shut down the QTP thr' task manager many times or it gets closed or crashed automatically then this occurs sometimes. May be I'm going wrong way.... [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] but this is what i think...!! [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
The reason may be due to a corrupted XML file. Most settings that we do in QTP including the toolbar, OR & ORM is stored in XML files and when we invoke QTP after closing it, it reads the previous settings from these XML files.
