uses 'reg' utility, which is not available (by default) on my system:
Windows 2000 + MSVC8EE + SDK 2003R2.

This would seem to be available on WinXP+...

There may be a way to manually install it on Windows 2000 (Professional)...

It should be possible to check that this utility is available before trying to use it.
Flags: in-testsuite-
Don't care, sorry. We may be supporting Win2k with the actual product, but that doesn't mean we have to support it for building.
