QTP 11 & QC11 – Critical BPT Patch Released QTP_00821

Are you having issues with BPT’s running in an infinite loop? Going crazy trying to figure the issue out? Well looks like this is actually a known problem.


HP has just released a critical patch for people using QuickTest Professional 11 and ALM/QC 11.00 with BPT. The patch resolves an issue with settings that were setup for normal QTP test were sometimes incorrectly applied to a Business Process Test run. These setting caused the BPT to run in an infinite loop.

Patch QTP_00821 can be downloaded from HP.

Hi Joe,

I was using QC 10.0, recently it update to ALM 11.00.
When I was using QC 10 all BPT tests were opening as BPT tests while executing from TestLab. But When I am executing from ALM 11.0 all BPT test are opening as Wrapper tests. Is there any solution to get normal BPT tests as previous while executing? And also for BPT is there any seperate patches for ALM 11.0? Could you please help me on this ASAP?
