I had this very problem and your solution worked perfectly. Thank you very much!

Absolutely perfect! This was hanging my configuration wizard on step 5 and immediately after updating the registry key the wizard completed successfully!

Many, many thanks to you!

Worked perfectly, thank you. Claims to Windows Token Service would not start on a server with no internet connection (because it was trying to check CRLs presumably). Now it works. Thank you again.
