How can I configure Automatic Browser Configuration Settings with IE11

The domain/forest level is 2003.  We have a blend of 2003 and 2008 domain controllers. Currently defined in our GPO Automatic Browser configuration settings for users, is the URL to our .pac file to control internet access.  IE11 does not detect this GPO setting.

With our current configuration, how can we still use GPO to configure the .pac file and have IE11 detect the settings?

Thanks!

If you turned this setting on in the "Internet Explorer Maintenance" section then IE10 and IE11 will indeed ignore those settings. Microsoft has a list of replacements for managing those settings. They are in the admin templates or via preferences.
