With windows vista and IE8, downloaded necessary patches..but still there are issues with object recognition.
Object is identified one way at one time and another way, other time, not consistent. With object spy, the properties are different again. Is it issue with IE8 and Windows Vista. With IE8, changed the user security settings and set the protected mode to OFF.
Is it better to downgrade to IE7 and Windows XP. Please suggest

When you wont have the static identifiers, you should go with "Descriptive programming" approach.
i.e., using text, title and other parameters of the object.

I tested it is same with me.I installed QTP on Windows vista and IE 8 and it is unstable.
I revert back to XP and IE7 it is working perfect.

I think HP did not release official verified patches for windows vista and IE8.

hi,

It seems that you are using QTP ver 9.2 / 9.5
As I remember, IE 8.0 is suppoerted starting QTP 10.0, so try to upgrade your QTP version instead of downgrade your OS.

hope it helped,
Tomer.
