I don't know wether there exists the possibility to "export" a windows
registry this way. The only way I already used is, starting the windows
system, running regedit in windows, export the (complete) registry there,
then reboot and import it using "wine regedit".
As far as I know, "wine regedit" always operates on the registry in the wine
environment, never in real windows-dir. Maybe you can alter this behaviour by
specifying the real windows dir in your wine config file (therefore you
should set "/windows" as your drive c, c:\\windows as win-dir and c:\\windows
\\system as win-system-dir). But I never tested this and would not use it
unless a complete backup of the windows drive exists.
