Windows is generally not case sensitive. There may be instances however where something may be case sensitive but for the most part unless you had a specific support note or article I would suggest case will not matter.

I usually err on the side of caution and follow the existing key values. If I am changing a value I use the same format for the new value when it comes to case.
