I want to bring up QTP "naked" and set eveything from run settings to object identification.

Works but its slow, like REAL slow. The issues occur when it starts using the QTP object model to set the object identification. When I change the run settings from slow to fast there is no decrease in speed. It does however speed up a little if I have a QTP menu open with my mouse (neat!)

I have tried putting this portion in an external .vbs file and loading it, but even the .vbs file is slow.

Has anyone encountered this and if so have you come up with anything to reduce the time it takes to set up the object identification?
