c# program to read xml files in a directory

I I need the C# code to do the following
1.Scan every directory(including sub directories) between 3/15/2011 and now
2.Read any file that starts with "Status....xml
3.Look for the status tag in the XML. Example <Status> </status>
3.Write the directory path,the status to a text file if the status is not <Status>Success</status>

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Try the following.   Don't forget to add System.IO and System.Xml.  I hope this helps.
using System.IO;
using System.Xml;

private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    string[] filenames = Directory.GetFiles(@"C:\YourDir", "Status*.xml", SearchOption.AllDirectories);
    foreach (string p in filenames)
       FileInfo fi = new FileInfo(p);
       string StatusStr = string.Empty;
       DateTime dt;
       bool isOK = DateTime.TryParse("03/15/2011",out dt);
       if((fi.LastWriteTime.CompareTo(dt) >= 0) && (fi.LastWriteTime.CompareTo(DateTime.Now) <= 0))
           //Read XML File
           XmlDocument doc = new XmlDocument();
           XmlNodeList elemList = doc.GetElementsByTagName("Status");
           for (int i = 0; i < elemList.Count; i++)
               StatusStr = elemList[i].InnerXml;
           if (StatusStr != "Success")
               File.AppendAllText(@"C:\Test\result.txt", p);
               File.AppendAllText(@"C:\Test\result.txt", StatusStr);
