Microsoft added this function to allow IT administrators to update their WPAD scripts to use different versions of the WPAD processing engine without causing breaks to their existing deployment. For example, if Microsoft added a function to the 2.0 version of the WPAD engine, then administrators can check the version before attempting to call that function. This allows their script to work with client running versions 1.0 and 2.0 of the WPAD engine.


    returns the appropriate versions number of the WPAD engine.
