    Accepted Solution

    Set "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\AutoConfigURL" to point to your configuration script. See also

    Automatic Configuration script
    Registry path
    HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings

    The registry settings in this section are for Windows 2000 Professional or Windows XP Professional clients, or for Windows Server 2003 without the Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration enabled.

    The AutoConfigURL entry is used to specify where Internet Explorer checks for a configuration script. The configuration script is used to update the Internet Explorer setup.
