    Hmmm, interesting find...

    They say Wines got builtin regedit so if thats the case I wonder why dumphives needed. It seems they're exporting (dumping) and importing the dump rather than editing the registry directly? Its great for read but maybe not so much for read/write.

    Yeah...
    Well the OP suggested using dumphives, but the third poster I believe it was said that wine had a built-in registry editor. I haven't tested it yet myself though, so im not sure exactly how (or how well) it works.

    The only real purpose I can see for this is in a recovery type situation, but you can access the registry a lot easier from a bartpe boot cd. Say the systems so bad you can't boot a Windows disc, than this might be useful.

    Or if you didn't have a BartPe disk, but had Ubuntu on the computer...
