Refresh LAN Settings in IE

I wrote a small app to turn on and off the proxy settings in Internet Explorer.
How do I refresh the settings programmatically without having to close and reopen IE?

Thanks

Hi,

Try this function:

uses WinInet;

procedure IE_Reread_Registry_Settings;
var
  HInet: HINTERNET;
begin
  hInet := InternetOpen(PChar('ProgramName'), INTERNET_OPEN_TYPE_DIRECT,
    nil, nil, INTERNET_FLAG_OFFLINE);
  try
    if hInet <> nil then
      InternetSetOption(hInet, INTERNET_OPTION_SETTINGS_CHANGED, nil, 0);
  finally
    InternetCloseHandle(hInet);
  end;
end;

Regards, Geo
