When you install something, and then use it, it makes continual edits to the registry and elsewhere.
That registry also holds lots of things that relate to the OS.

You can't spawn off parts of the registry that might apply to certain applications, and apply those pieces to a whole new Registry that exists with a new OS.

Some applications, you can export all of its current settings, and import those into a new OS. Firefox/Chrome/IE does this.
But that only applies to that individual application.
With a whole new OS install, there is no "Apply all of the stuff from the old OS".
