I need to edit the ini file in notepad from the windows directory (or application directory)... how do I do that without hardcoding it?

System.Diagnostics.Process.Start("notepad.exe", "c:\\windows\\myini.ini");

Check under Environment. There is a property that gives you the system folder.

Try the following

System.Diagnostics.Process.Start( "notepad.exe", Environment.GetEnvironmentVariable("windir").ToString() + "\\myini.ini" );
