The "Basic authentication enabled for SSL connections only" setting (WebClient\Parameters\BasicAuthLevel = 1) seems to be the default for Vista and later; this is well and good because Apache's own documentation advises Basic over SSL rather than Digest.

P.S.: You can just restart the "WebClient" service, rather than reboot.
Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8

To enable Basic authentication on the client computer, follow these steps:

In Windows Vista or Windows 7, click Start, type regedit in the Start Search box, and then press Enter.

On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click DWORD Value.

Was The Windows Registry a Good Idea?
Was The Windows Registry a Good Idea? No

Was it better than the implementation of INI files? Yes

Solution : A better implementation of ini files

The two things it solved was speed and centralisation
Ini files are slow, but don't need to be?
Ini files are scattered but don't need to be

If I run a program I would expect it to save my settings in my space not in it's program folder, not in the system folder, not hidden somewhere (seemingly randomly) in the registry, if it's a global setting - isn't that what All Users is for?

Is there any command line tool that can be used to edit environment variables in Windows? - Super User
Looking for a solution to set environment variables without having access to the System control panel in order to do this (http://stackoverflow.com/a/11763013) with Eclipse and EGit.
I don't know any tool that does this, but maybe you can use the regcommand:

reg query "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment" /v Path
to read the current path, and

reg add "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment" /v Path /d "newPath" /f
to write your new value.

You need admin rights for hsving right acccess in HKLM. If that is a problem, consider modifying the user specific path setting in HKCU\Environment instead.

Also interesting:
If you need a generic way to set any environment variable and have the changes persist, then setx.exe would be the tool to use. It cannot do the "smart" things you are asking for, though...

setx.exe is included with Windows Vista or later; if you use an earlier version of Windows, you can use the above download link to get it.
