    Hello Everyone,


    Our organization has a security control in place which disables "WinHTTP Web Proxy Auto-Discovery Service" on the all our Windows 7/8/10 machines.  we have started testing Windows 10 release 1803 and with "WinHTTP Web Proxy Auto-Discovery Service" disabled it seems fiddler cannot set the proxy on the machine.  This same control is in place for previous Windows 7/8/10 releases as well and I have no issue using Fiddler on these machines. 

    Did anyone else also encounter a similar issue?  Is there an explanation for this problem?

    Thank you for your help in advance.
