             Summary: QTP11 with Flex Plugin 4.5 causes IE9 to crash
                 Key: FLEX-33859
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLEX-33859
             Project: Apache Flex
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: Adobe Flex SDK 4.6 (Release)
         Environment: QuickTest Professional 11.0 (QTP_00699, QTP_00709, QTPWEB_00078 patches
Flex Plugin 4.5
IE 9
Windows 7
            Reporter: VictorB

QTP 11.0 is started with Flex plugin 4.5 and Web addin.  Our application is compiled with
Flex automation libraries, runs within IE9, and on Windows 7.
When we use the Object Spy or learn an object via the Object Repository, IE crashes and freezes
up the system, and we are forced to restart the machine.  We can record/replay scripts without
any problems.  We can also replay existing automation scripts.

Additional background info....we have been using QTP 9.5, Flex Plugin 3.0, IE8 on a WinXP
machine for the last couple years.  We ran into a few issues initially, but worked them out,
and automation scripts have been running successfully since.
But since our upgrade to Win7, QTP, & Flex Plugin, we have been running into this problem.

Current workarounds:
1)  if we run an existing script or record/replay a new script, then we can use Object Spy
and learn objects through Obj Repository without IE crashing.  However, if we refresh IE (reload
the app), and try to use Object Spy, then IE will crash.
2)  In FlexPluginLogConfigFile.cfg file, if we set LOG_ENABLING to 1, which enables logging,
then the issue no longer occurs.  But the log file grows quickly when replaying or recording

This appears to be a defect since the hooking mechanism used to point on objects is missing
something when using Object Spy or Object Repository, and only re-enabled after recording/replay
or with the logging file enabled.

Could not verify against Adobe's FlexStore (http://examples.adobe.com/flex2/inproduct/lcds/flexstore/flexstore.html)
since the app is no longer available....wish Adobe never got rid of the FlexStore, but that's
another issue.

Same issue was reported in FLEX-30453 ticket, but it was closed with the resolution that IE9
is not supported for QTP automation.  And FLEXENT-1472, referenced below, is no longer available.

Currently we are not supporting IE9 for QTP automation

Duplicate to FLEXENT-1472.Hence closed.
However, according Adobe's compatibility matrix 
IE9 is supported using QTP11 and Flex plug-in 4.6

Please let me know if Adobe/Apache is aware of this issue, and when there will be a fix for
Thank you
