IE8 crashes with event type BEX in specific cases!
I am using QTP 11 on Windows7 professional and IE8. The issue is only happening if QTP is launched with ActiveX and Silverlight add-ins both loaded.
The issue is:
When I try to open specific page in the web application that for which I need to create the script in IE8 while QTP is running (with ActiveX and Silverlight add-ins both loaded), the page crashes and problem event type is BEX (if that helps). Now, I tried this after disabling add-ons one by one and I find that the culprit is Microsoft Silverlight add-on in IE8. Can anyone please help in this?
It is also happening if I try to open http://www.msn.com while QTP is opened (with ActiveX and Silverlight add-ins both loaded).
On googling this issue, I find that this issue can be solved if I compare the Security settings of IE7 and IE8 and disable any new security settings that IE8 have. I tried that also but in vain. Can someone please guide me in correct direction to resolve this issue?
