IXMLHTTPRequest and SSL protocols

I'm using an instance of IXMLHTTPRequest to communicate with an webservice over SSL. It supports the SSL simply by using "https" in the URL, but I can't see how I can get control over (or even determine) the protocol it uses. I think it is using TLS 1.1 and I want to switch to TLS 1.2. Can anybody tell me how to do it?

Thanks,
Danny Heijl

I think the only possible way is to use the relevant SSL/TLS registry settings for Schannel:
