I'm tried to change a registry entry using regedit launched from POL gui, and also tryed to modify registry (file "user.reg") manually (with text editor), but I can't make these changes permanent. Each time when any program in this wine virtual disk called, registry is reseted to default.

So what can I do to make permanent changes in registry?

Well, you shouldn't need to do anything special. Are you running playonlinux as root or sudo?

What exactly are you trying to do?

I'm running playonlinux without root privelegies.
And I'm trying to change entry [Software\\\\Wine\\\\Fonts].Codepages from value "1252,437" to value "1251,866"

Never edit registry directly, use regedit.

But it also doesn't saves that entry! However i changed another entry and it was saved. But exactly this doesn't.

Then that probably means that Wine is actively updating it, probably from the host system configuration, and you need to find another way to change it (I assume by setting $LANG environment variable to ru_RU.utf8 or ru_RU.cp1251 in the environment of the program, see http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=665485 and other links you can find with "wine codepages", "wine windows-1251 cyrillic", etc.)
