All current Code read and write to  

When creating the registry symlink the other way around,
how does it work with existing installations?

I tested the other symlink:
has the magic entry (SymbolicLinkValue with REG_LINK)
with (cannot display value) as data,
but the link doesn't work.

Creating the link target (HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT
\CurrentVersion\Print\Printer) doesn't help.

Deleting the current data followed by a "wineboot -u" doesn't help.
