I am running the Visual C# .NET sample program - Visual C# Walkthrough: Reading XML Data into a Dataset, and getting the following error:
       An unhandled exception of type 'System.UnauthorizedAccessException' occurred in system.xml.dll
       Additional information: Access to the path "C:\tmp" is denied.
On the code lines:
      string filePath = "C:\\tmp";
      dsAuthors.ReadXml(filePath);

I have checked the attributes for C:\tmp  using command "attrib" and read only is not on.
I am logged in as Administrator.

What else should I look at?

string filePath = "C:\\tmp";

I think this should be some XML file, like:

string filePath = "C:\\tmp\\data.xml";

That was it.  I thought the dataSource name was appended to the path - not so.
The path and filename are required.
