Resolved Question

I need windows 7 (32-bits) printing registry file

Unfortunately, I've made some changes to the registry file: (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \SYSTEM \CurrentControlSet \ Control\ Print), and now my windows isn't configuring printer properly.
Could someone help me providing the registry file?
Now I understand how crucial it is to back things up!

Long road method.

Go get Virtual Box and since you have your W7 DVD, install W7 to a quick virtual machine. Doesn't have to be fancy or complete. Just enough to run regedit and get your info.

I've done this for many reasons. To answer questions like "What fonts did W7 come with?" to testing if the OS works with my app in a clean install, and more.

This is rather easy to delete and uninstall Virtual Box when done too.
