Max_packet_allowed setting for Windows 7

All we need is an easy explanation of the problem, so here it is.

We have windows xp machine with older version of mysql. So when we need to import huge data we just set the max_allowed_packet=1500M in the C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.1 . Now we loaded the latest mysql 5.6.12. We are trying to import the same date and we find there are few my.cnf file on is in the program file and another in programme data both change yet we cant import the same data. Where else to change even after the change we started the service by going into the admistrative tool.
