SecureBlackbox 16: Windows Explorer can't connect to the WebDAV server sample. Why?

Note: This article applies only to SecureBlackbox Legacy. For future development please consider using the latest version.

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.
