The question you found that mentions using wmic to set the certificate thumbprint value should work without any additional feature installation. I asked and answered a similar question here with a little more detail. It also has a PowerShell equivalent for the wmic command. But I'll add some more explanation here as well.

There is no "2 administrative connections +1 ...
