My application requires a simple ini file. Is there a easy way to implement this without using any parsing

Yes. This may not be the most efficient way to read from a ini file but it is a pretty good solution that is easy to maintain.

You can use a XML file to store your settings. Use a DataSet to read from it. Consider a simple sample file, config.ini. It has three parameters base_path, update_path and output_file. These will map to columns in the settings datatable.

view config.ini

You can of course use XmlReader, XmlDocument etc to create and maintain more complex ini files. But this is a quick way to maintain a simple property set.
