Be prepared for a Internet Explorer conflict if you are using HP-LoadRunner with Oracle NCA protocol and QTP on a same machine. QTP requires that the option Enable third-party browser extensions under Internet Options > Advanced should be enabled (mandatory while working with Web-Addin)
On the other hand if you try to record a scenario in HP-LoadRunner with NCA protocol the browser will crash just at the place where it launch the applets, the work-around for this problem was to disable Enable third-party browser extensions.!!!
So there we are, two tools from the same company, one needs and the other fails on the same option.
Can we call this a bug with LoadRunner Oracle NCA protocol? or Am I missing something here? What do you say?
