    I am getting this error when i add xml code to my application. Basically I am trying to add listitems to XML file.

    Code:
    private const string filename = "C:\\schedulers.xml";            
    XmlTextWriter sch = null;
                sch = new XmlTextWriter(filename, null);
                sch.Formatting = Formatting.Indented;
                sch.Namespaces = false;
    try
                    {
                        sch.WriteStartDocument();
    
                        sch.WriteStartElement("", "Schedules", "");
    
                        sch.WriteStartElement("", "Scheduler", "");
                        sch.WriteString(subjTextbox.Text.ToString());
                        sch.WriteEndElement();
    
                        sch.WriteStartElement("", "FileName", "");
                        sch.WriteString(textFile.Text.ToString());
                        sch.WriteEndElement();
    
                        sch.WriteStartElement("", "Date & Time", "");
                        sch.WriteString(date.ToString());
                        sch.WriteEndElement();
    
                        sch.WriteEndElement();
                        sch.Flush();
                    }
                    catch (Exception e1)
                    {
                        MessageBox.Show(e1.Message);
    
                    }
