not directories, the contents of the windows registry.
I havent yet managed to workout what file(s) this is stored in in win,
but you can export keys from the regedit program in win.
The majority of programs store keys in /local machine/software/<app name>
for these you should be able to export the key folders to a text file
and import that into Wine.
btw, when I did this I think the import function in wine wasn't working.
And I think I copied the blocks from the text file into the wine reg
file (look at file in your .wine dir one of them). If your not familiar
with registry keys, hopefully it should be obvious how these work if you
take a look in the text file.
Some apps will spread keys all over the registry and you will have a
hard time to find out what keys it needs. For these (if they work in
wine) you will probably have to reinstall them in wine, though if you
really want you might be able to delete the install dir and reuse the
install dir in windows as the wine reg will get the apps keys at install
