Windows 7 Issue
Are you trying to run a function library in QTP11 on a Windows 7 machine and receiving the error message “QuickTest Professional has stopped working“.
Is QTP hanging driving you crazy? Turns out this is a known issue.
HP has a hotfix available for this issue named “QTP_00778 – Support Opening Function Libraries in the Script Editor on Windows 7 “

Why is this hotfix not in my download section? At HP Discover this year I was told by an HP rep that it was not a good idea to post hotfixes on my site. The reason is that a hotfix is actual not an official patch. A hotfix is usually only for a limited group of users that have similar OS, product version configurations.
Installing a hotfix on a machine that does not meet these limited conditions can cause serious issue. Because of this you need to contact HP Support directly to request a hotfix. HP Support will determine whether or not the hotfix is pertinent to our specific issue/situation.
