QTP / Office Incompatibility

Hi Guys,


Just over last weekend, I noticed suddenly 3 of my test machines have problem launching ms office.


After some investigation, it only happens when QTP is launched. I believe it has nothing to do with OS or MS version because some of them are Win XP/7 and some of them are Office 2007/2010. So, the combination is mixed.




(1) When QTP is launched, Excel / Word / Powerpoint can't launch. I can see the process running in task mgr but it fail to appear in the window.


(2) When QTP is closed, Excel / Word / Powerpoint can launch normally.


* I managed to resolve the issue by reinstalling QTP.


Did you guys encounter incident like this before?... My QTP has been installed for more than 2 years and it just happened in a sudden. Another thing to note, it only happened to some of the test machines, 4 other machines are fine.
