IE10 ignores local wpad.dat file

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

with both ie10 ignores my local wpad completly.

Do i miss anything. I do not want to use dhcp or dns i just want to test the file in ie10.

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.
