Convert VB to C#, Scripting.FileSystemObject becomes what..?

I have a very simple VB.NET (I assume it's .NET, may be old style VB) application that I am trying to convert to C#

Here is the problem code:

Dim fso As New Scripting.FileSystemObject
Dim fdr As Folder
Dim fil As File

fdr = fso.GetFolder(path)

For Each fil In fdr.Files
   do stuff
Next

I'm assuming the Folder is translated to an object of type System.IO.Directory, and File is System.IO.File, but I couldn't find an equivalent for the FileSystemObject.

What would the other functionality translate to?

you're kinda talking apples and oranges here..

your VB.NET code is using Windows Scripting objects - which obviously will work.  

what you're talking about is not only converting it to C# - but also eliminated the Windows Script objects to .NET Framework classes/objects.

In any case - the classes you want are all in System.IO namespace.  Pay particular attention to:

File
FileInfo
Directory
DirectoryInfo

Directory and DirectoryInfo both have methods for GetFiles

sorry - eliminated should be 'converted' in the 3rd line

Attached is a code snippet that is the equivalent of yours in C# - and is copied directly from the link above, so read through the link and you should be able to see what is needed.
    string[] files= Directory.GetFiles(winDir);
    foreach (string i in files)
    {
        addListItem(i);
    }
