I get an error that the registry installation failed whenever I install 
the registry using "regedit winedefault.reg" which is the only way I 
know how to do it. Check in your $HOME/.wine directory to see if it did 
actually fail. I get system.reg and user.reg files that are quite large 
plus a tiny userdef.reg, and winecheck passes them as all okay. As far 
as I can tell, the error message is a bug.

If they really aren't installing, there is a trick to get them to 
install which always works for me. Before running regedit, I change 
"SaveOnlyUpdatedKeys" in the [registry] section of $HOME/.wine/config to 
"N" (it defaults to "Y"). After running regedit and verifying that the 
three registers were created, I change "SaveOnlyUpdatedKeys" back to 
"Y" because I want Wine to write to its own registry, not to a real 
Windows registry.

No idea. Sorry.
