Re: QTP 9.5 is not working with IE8

When QTP 9.5 was released I don't think IE8 was even on the horizon.

Look in the QTP folder (help or bin I think) for readme.htm, this will tell you what browsers 9.5 is compatible with.

Why not upgrade to v10 + recommended patches.

Re: QTP 9.5 is not working with IE8

This is the fix for IE 8.0 with Quality Center. This should also assist with QTP. Make sure that you have the following options set for compatibility.

Under Tools / Internet Options / Privacy tab / Medium setting

Under the Tools / Compatibility View Settings is selected

Under Tools / Internet Options/ Advanced tab, turn off the "Enable memory protection to help mitigate on-line attacks" option

I hope this helps.

Re: QTP 9.5 is not working with IE8

Are you using any licensed addins such as .Net, Jave (not the 3 standard in-built addins)?

If so there is a different licensing structure for v10. If you want to upgrade to v10 you may need to talk to your area rep regarding replacing the licenses.

QTP v9.5 does not have any patch to support IE 8.0


QTP v10+ Patch QTPWEB_00037 will support testing on IE 8.0
