The HKEY_CURRENT_CONFIG (HKCC) subtree stores configuration data for the current hardware profile.
This subtree does not contain any data. It just stores a pointer to the content of the Hardware Profiles\Current subkey in the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\CurrentControlSet\Hardware Profiles subkey. The content of the Current subkey appears in HKEY_CURRENT_CONFIG, and it can be viewed and changed in either location. This subtree provides easier access to the data.
