what do you mean by "edit it' and "add some lines"?

Why are you using StringTokenizer, which is a legacy class?
What is supposed to happen and what goes wrong? Please look at this FAQ.
Why are you doing anything to a file in system32?
Why have you written an empty catch block?
Have you checked out Aspose?
