I tried that and it didn't work via Regedit / Registry / Import
I'll try again with a clean registry and file a bug if it doesn't work.
There is not a command line switch listed for importing in regedit /?

I tried that, and evidently made some error, so the registry
complains :-(.
Lucky I have it backed up.

I am not sure native regedit is the best idea, as the windows registry
has text buried in hex gobbledygook, whereas the wine registry uses
whitespace. Also, the wine system.reg is relative to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE,
I gather. I will try it, nevertheless, with another backup.

Thanks for suggestions
