Webdav not working (Registry options set)

I can't connect to Confluence using the native Windows WebDAV Connector. I have read the Troubleshooting section (https://studio.plugins.atlassian.com/wiki/display/WBDV/WebDAV+Client+Setup#WebDAVClientSetup-WebDAVClientSetupMicrosoftWebFolders) and set the 2 registry keys accordingly, but Windows still can't find the WebDAV share.

Is there anything more I could do? I have tried the WebDrive Client, shown in the supported software table, and it works. For testing purposes I'm trying to connect to localhost (which means I'm trying it on the server). I have read that, in order to use WebDAV as Windows Drive, I need to have non-secured connection (we're using http instead of http) and the listener port must be 80 (which is not the case). Due to this I'm trying to map web directory.

OS: Windows Server 2008 R2

I believe that this article from our Knowledge Base can help you with this issue:

Hi Fernando. I've set both of the registry keys already (and also restarted), but it still won't work. As I could see, mapping a regular network drive (like you'd do with net use) requires HTTPS off (it's turned on on our system) and listener port 80 (we're running on 8090). I guess I'll really have to use another client than the native windows client.
