Internet Explorer 8 stops responding (crashes) while QTP running more than 40 minutes

Internet Explorer 8 stops responding (crashes) while QTP running more than 40 minutes

Hi all,

 

I have a web application and I test it with QTP 11 / Windows 7/ IE8

 

However, if QTP test has a lot of actions and the execution is around 1 hour then IE8 crashes (the message that it is stops responding, appeared)

 

Do you know why?Do I have to install a patch or something?

 

Thank you

IE 8 on win7 is kinda of a hidden thing by Microsoft.

 

I think they did it to "hide" incompatibilities.

 

I have tried to downgrade from IE9 just to have compatibility for my scripts in win7 and it is not as stable as IE8 in winXP.

 

Maybe you should go back to IE9?

 

Just saying... :)

May be it's because of browser bloating up with cookies/cache when running contonously for an hour -

 

Did you try this?(on IE)

WebUtil.DeleteCookies
