Hi Shivaram,


I am already working with administrator account. I have also tried by disabling anti-virus and firewall but no use.

Re: QTP 11.5 crashed

Hi imk048, it is not enough to have only "Admin rights" on a Vista machine... You have to deactivate UAC (User Account Control) for your user and (restart the machine and ensure that UAC is deactivated) then you have the real Admin rights... Intall then QTP... Without deactivating the UAC even when you "have" Admin rights you are limited ;) Kind regards, A.E.

Event Viewer.


1)  Description: The process was terminated due to an unhandled exception.

Exception Info: System.ArgumentNullException

I am administrator.  I have another machine that had the UFT temporary license on it and then upgrade to concurrent license and it works fine.
