The InternetQueryOption call only picks up manually configured proxies - it
will pick up different manual settings (eg if you have different settings
for a Lan or a dialup link) but doesn't work with WPAD. Sorry, should have
pointed this out to you when I contributed the original code.

InternetQueryOption doesn't take any sort of URL as an argument which would
be needed to parse the WPAD data to find out if a direct connection should
be made or which proxy to use. There may be an alternative call that
supports WPAD, but I'm not really a windows programer so don't know.
