    I have developed a windows application ..on which there are three web browser controls...all navigate to same web URL.... But for each web browser...proxy settings should be different... currently i am setting proxy in registery...with following code

    private void Change_IE_Settings(String strProxy, bool action)
    RegistryKey RegKey = Registry.CurrentUser.OpenSubKey("Software\\Microsoft\\Windows\\CurrentVersion\\Internet Settings", true);
    if (action == true)
    RegKey.SetValue("ProxyServer", strProxy);
    RegKey.SetValue("ProxyEnable", 1);
    RegKey.SetValue("ProxyEnable", 0);

    But with these all three web browser's have same proxy settings...I need all three should have different proxy settings.Please suggest solution or any alternate of this problem.

    Thanks in advance

    I don't think it can be done with registry settings. (You're asking for using the same application to view the same end-point in different route.)

    I seriously doubt if it can be done, because it seems only 1 iexplore.exe instance can be run in the session. (See, if one instance of IE hangs and you kill it, all the opened IE browser windows are closed.) So I suspect they also share settings.

    The best I can think of is using Virtual PC to bring 2 more VMs then you can run IEs from those 3 environment. Each instance won't interfere with each other.
