You have to add the .pac extension to the MIME type maps in IIS. right click on Web Sites, select the HTTP Headers tab and add the .pac file type as a new MIME type.

Associated extension: .pac
Content type (MIME): would be .pac as well?

trying to look it up -  I think 'application/octet-stream' (without the quotes).

unrecognised MIME types always give a 404 file not found.
