  • Hello,

    In one of my application I'm accepting PAC file url from user? How do i validate the PAC file url in C++? Is there any direct windows API to validate the PAC file URL?

    Thanks in advance.

  • download the file and execute it with IE's jscript engine via IActiveScript...or with any other javascript engine.

  • I just wanted to validate the ULR not content. Is there any windows API for this? Like parseURL or AfxParseURL? 

    Thanks In Advance
