QTP 9.2 and IE8
      #557861 - 03/19/09 02:15 PM

I'm running v9.2 and our company wants to start testing our applications for IE8 since they're coming off beta and going as a full-on update.

When I've got QTP open, attempting to launch IE8 causes the browser to crash immediatly. Has anyone seen behavior like this? I plan on rechecking the workstation tomorrow but if it's a documented issue it *might* provide me with some leverage to get the upgrade since we do a lot of automated regression testing out here.

Hey, I've been pushing for a QTP software update but I'm just a small cog in the large machine.

You haven't noticed versions 9.5 or 10.0 of QTP? One or both of those MIGHT support this new browser. Review the readme that comes with your version of QTP as it specifies the OS platforms and browser versions it supports.

Oh trust me, *I* noticed and have been requesting it. It took the Vista compatibility issues to get me the version I have now.

The readme wouldn't mention IE8 since it just came out of beta from Microsoft, I believe, today.

Thank you Mallik..

I didn't install QTP 10 yet.... can you tell me the response of QTP10 when QTP 9.2 or 9.5 developed scripts are run on it...did it ask for any patch to be installed like it happens for QTP 9.2 script to run on QTP 9.5???...

Script will be automatically upgraded to the current version on its own after getting a confirmation with ther user, when you open a script in QTP 10 which is created in 9.2 / 9.5

Before starting with QTP10 - make back up your TestCases.
In QTP10, when open TC first time - you would be asked to make conversion. (exactly procedure when we vent from QTP6.x to QTP9.x)
It is not reversible.
Also, there are something that do not work in QTP10 and required changing script.
If your scripts are simple - you probably will not get those problems. If not...
Be ready to works on every TC...
You will see, when trying to run.

Just forgotten:
QTP9.x doent's work with IE8. Period.
Problem can not be fixed in any way.
In IE8 - lot of new stuff come to the world,
lot of internal changes, not visible to the clients,
but effected on tool.
QTP9.x did not coded to support IE8.

The only solution is install QTP10.
It supports IE8 and works as expected.

The only way to get QTP 9.2 to work with IE8 is to turn off "Active X" plugin. (taken that your script does not need "Active X").

Try it out. Create a simple test like opening IE8 but without "Active X" plug in, and you will see that it opens IE8 perfectly. Now do the same but with "Active X" plug in, you will see the crash.

Set objIE = CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application")
objIE.Visible = True
objIE.Navigate2 "http://www.microsoft.com/"

I have QTP 9.1 running on a machine and am able to run a full regression suite on IE8 in Windows XP....

I have not disabled Active X, it is using the default configuration as an upgrade from IE7.

I don't believe that ActiveX and Javascript are the same thing and many of my companies applications require ActiveX testing.

Yesterday they gave me a copy of QTP9.5 and I installed it on a machine with IE8 installed. I bet you can figure what happenened the second I tried launching IE8 while QTP9.5 was running.

Time to write another email request. Wish me luck.

You need to update internet/Intranet security settings for your browser.

Duplicate the IE7 settings to IE8 and anything new to IE8 disable it.

It should be working fine
