The switches check ok for continuity but, when I looked for 12v across the switch contacts I was only getting .2v. After a little while I unplugged the wire harness to the drivers side regulator and found I had the full 12v across the switch contacts. Sounds like the regulator to me but, it seams odd that both regulators would go bad at the same time. If it is the just the drivers side regulator would it prevent both widows from operating?
Well if I understand what you wrote, I'd say you have a dead short in the driver side motor with a voltage drop like described. Thats why it blew the fuse.
Have you tried disconnecting the driver side and rolling up the passenger side , By disconnecting the driver side you should get full voltage to the passenger side window..

Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.
Torque it down till it breaks off, then back it off 1/4 turn.
