Hi ITsolutionWizard;

Try this code snippet, it should do what you want.

using System.Xml;
using System.Xml.Linq;

// Get the XML into memory. The below statement loads from the file system. If the XML is in memory as a string then change the Load to Parse and the parameter to the variable name.
XDocument xdoc = XDocument.Load("C:/Working Directory/machine.xml");

// The results is the MachineWant with its child nodes.
var activeMachines = xdoc.Descendants("MachineWant").Where( m => m.Element("Status").Value == "Active").ToList();
