It should import the file to the registry. Check in default programs that the reg file extension has its current default program set as the registry editor. I don't have XP but should be something like C:\Windows\regedit.exe

Some tips here

Then reboot.

Sometimes you can right click the extracted file and you can select 'merge' if showing.
