ie10 proxy setting windows 7
Please can you help.
We have just done a windows update and ie10 has been installed on one of our windows 7 machines and proxy settings are not applying.
Group policy results say this:_
Internet Explorer Branding Failed 19/03/2013 11:03:11
Internet Explorer Branding failed due to the error listed below.
The specified procedure could not be found.
Additional information may have been logged.
I have searched the internet and many people have problems with ie10 on windows 8.
I have tried the following:_
Download the windows 2012 admx and copy the inetres.admx and its appropriate language settings into the central repository here \\Domain\SYSVOL\Domain\Policies\PolicyDefinitions
This has not worked.
I have gone into the gpo for the \home page\user config\preferences\control panel\internet settings\ and click file and new and we only get intent explorer 5, 6 7 and 8
From what I have read this is meant to give us 9 and 10 as well.
I have tried setting the ie proxy through a registry setting
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Internet Settings]
with a log on script of
regedit.exe /s \\Domain\NETLOGON\setproxy\proxy.reg
If the user runs the above script it appears to work ok and the proxy gets set.
We dont have any windows 8 or windows 2012 machines to try the rsat tool.
Have you any idea how I can get round the problem of setting the ie10 proxy settings?
Thanks for all your help.

The root of the problem here is that in IE10, the Internet Explorer Maintenance GPO extension is no longer supported.
TechNet: Replacements for Internet Explorer Maintenance
You will need to either implement the registry settings as above (perhaps using Group Policy Preferences if you don't like scripts), or do what I've done and get auto config working using a WPAD file so you don't need to change anything.

Could you use Group Policy Preferences?

Yes, you could also use the Internet Settings part of Group Policy Preferences. However, my experience of this is that the all-in-one nature of the UI means it's quite fiddly to just get it to apply proxy settings on their own without a load of other settings that you might want to leave well alone. Easier to use GPP to apply just the above registry settings, in my opinion.

GPP works fine for it, we use a 2012 DC for this job.
However, when you move from IE Maintenance to GPP, you will have loads of fun and games getting it to work as even "not configured" settings interfere if they sue to be set. We moved all ours to GPP just this week, except the homepage simply will not work.

Luckily that has a 'normal' group policy setting.

When set to enabled you can set the homepage you want, the only possible downside being that the user cannot change it to something else (personally I don't want them changing it as it means they then can't 'forget' to check the Intranet for messages).

I read that that would stop GPP working, I'll do some testing.

Have you tried a gpupdate /force

If you specify a proxy.pac file hosted in IIS this does work.

I've got it working now, for some users, the issue was regarding some old legacy settings elsewhere that were overriding the GPP settings, took some digging to correct them.
However, does anyone use GPP to set IE settings and also use mandatory profiles? Because when I have tested this, it doesn't work, the proxy settings don't seem to apply, the rest of the policy does, just not the proxy.

@Michael did you find any way around that please?

@FN-GM - I just use a GPP regedit to deploy proxy settings to Win 7 clients running IE10 and 2008 R2 Server as follows:
The keys you're looking for are: ProxyEnable, ProxyServer and ProxyOverride. I've tested this in numerous domains and it works fine

It just buys you that little more time until Server 2012 R2 is released. Something I've been waiting for, for a while!
