I am testing a wpad.dat issue. so i put my wpad.dat in system32/Drivers/etc and i tried with c:\\ and FILE://

Your wpad.dat should be on a web server. For example, on your local machine you should have IIS WWW installed and the file placed in C:\Inetpub\wwwroot and configure local proxy to http://localhost/wpad.dat.

Can you try with file:/// (note the third slash)
