You must create in config file:

"lp" = "/etc/cups/ppd/printer.ppd"

lp is your printer and printer.ppd is your ppd file.
Or use the generic.ppd in ./documentation/samples/generic.ppd

Remove the *.reg in ~/.wine
Remove the wine.ini too.

Running the program.

The system.reg must create a fields with the printer.
