How can I programatically set the LAN Settings in the Internet Explorer to check the "use automatic configuration script" box and enter a proxy address?

To get to where I want to change click Tools, Internet Options, Connections Tab, Lan Settings.

I have some lazy system managers that want a program to do it for them automatically instead of them having to go to 200+ computers.

Just do soemthing like this:

Add 'Registry' to the uses clause of the unit.

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  Reg : TRegistry;
begin
  Reg := TRegistry.Create;
  with Reg do
  begin
    RootKey := HKEY_CURRENT_USER;
    OpenKey('Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings', False);
    WriteString('AutoConfigURL', 'config address');
    Free;
  end;
end;

If you have IE open and then run the code then you won't notice a difference until the browser has been closed and re-opened.

Cheers,

Alan
