    I know this is referencing an old post that was marked solved on another forum but I am trying to use the script http://www.visualbasicscript.com/fb.ashx?m=73386 to turn off the auto detect on my win7x64 IE9 system and just can't seem to get it to work and I am not comfortable using the script that makader provided there... could someone help? Thanks

    mmm...If its only a registry entry, i would suggest changing the setting, then do a "export". Afterwards you just need to click on the ".reg"-file...

    Thanks for the response... I do that often but this one is a little unique and should not really be done that way... I wish I knew VB and I could possibly get the script to work... but I am trying a few additional methods as well.

    Are you talking bout the "auto detect" when you are in IE9 under the tab LAN SETTINGS? If so, i could write you a script for x64... :biggrin:
    ...just post the registry setting here, and i'll compile the script from the registry setting...Just bare in mind all my scripts are "exe's" as i use AutoIt...

    Try THIS file...its just one i wrote to see if it will detect your settings. Unfortunatly i have done this with ie8...hope it works with ie9

    Very nice!!! I tested it and it definitely determines the state correctly on my WIN7x64 using the 32bit IE9... what I am trying to do is use a script in my silent install that I can set to automatically change it to OFF but in the proper manner by decrementing the 9th bit as discussed in the forum link I sent.

    (OP)
    Can't thank you enough for this!!! Works perfectly I REALLY appreciate it!!! :clap3: I am integrating it to my image now.

    PS - the link for the Silent-App doesn't work but copying the actual URL from the txt gave me the file

    PPS - think works on IE10 also :)
