Where are environmental variables stored

I have a crashed server, I can slave one of the HDD's and I need to pull some software specific info from the environmental variables section.  How can I find the values for the environmental variables from a slaved HDD?

The environment variable are stored in the registry. Typically here:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment

Hope this helps!

Can I use remote registry to get to the slaved drive registry?
Christopher McKayMicrosoft Network AdministratorCommented:
Try this:
Click Start
Click run
type "regedit" (no quotes)
click ok
click on and highlight  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
click on file
click load hive
browse to your slave disk
load appropriate hive.
copy entries  to .reg file.
close registry editor
Use the .reg file to import your registry entries into the registry on the new system.

Hope this helps!
