You'll need to compare the formats of the sub keys for the rules under here....

I am not in front of a PC ATM, but would be glad to help later if no other responses... Basically, if the formats of the rules appear to be the same, which they probably are, you would need to change the format of the .reg file to match your win 7 registry.....
