✔ Best Answer
What are you trying to accomplish?
The system.ini file is in the windows folder and can be edited like any text file.
This file is all but obsolete in Windows 7 and is used only to configure the 16 bit subsystem. It does not exist at all in a 64 bit OS as there is no 16 bit subsystem.

I agree to the above. Edit this file as you please but read below.

"In Windows 3.1 and older the system.ini file, as well as the Win.ini file, was the main location for system configuration information. In Windows 95, 98, and ME, most of this was moved to the registry, but it was still used for some system settings. On the NT platform, including Windows 2000, XP, Vista, Windows 7, this file is virtually obsolete. It is maintained only for compatibility with old 16 bit applications (Windows 3.1) that can not access the registry."
