Default Simple Problem

To any that can help thank you!

I have created a simple VB.NET windows form to read data from an xml document. I added and created the xml document to the project by right clicking the project and then clicking on add item, then selecting xml file.

I then went in and typed in a few elements that consist of names and addresses. When I ran my application I got the following error:

An unhandled exception of type 'System.IO.FileNotFoundException' occurred in system.xml.dll

Additional information: Could not find file "C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\My Documents\Visual Studio Projects\ParsingXML\bin\PubsAuthors.xml".

My application cannot find the file even though it is in the project.

And I did properly refer to the file with this line of code:

Dim XMLAuths As New Xml.XmlTextReader("PubsAuthors.xml")

Any help would be appreciated.

Are you sure the file is in the bin subfolder?
You're running as administrator, perhaps it's a rights issue, try moving the file to different folder outside of the project and specify the full path to the file.

Thank you for your reply. I moved the file into the bin folder and worked just great. My only question is why must the XML file be placed in the bin folder?

Thanks for your assistance,
