    This is not enough information for us to go by.

    What doesn't work? Are any errors generated? We haven't seen any of your code.
    I suggest you research the difference between the Windows XP and Windows 7 hosts file.
    Please use [highlight=Java] code [/highlight] tags when posting your code.

    Windows 7 is not allowing editing/modifying hosts file (hosts file is system file) using java program.
