Windows Explorer can't connect to the WebDAV server sample. Why?

The sample uses Basic HTTP authentication that is not supported on Windows 7 (and possibly other versions) by default. To enable it, follow the steps below:

  1. Open the registry editor (regedit.exe) and navigate to the following key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\WebClient\Parameters.

  2. Create or set the "BasicAuthLevel" parameter of the DWORD type with a value equal to "2".

  3. Restart the computer.
