There is similar question here
And i would just keep the path to the xml file.There is no way (at least i don't know a way) to keep a whole file into the registry. Save and read only the path to it
P.S use the Microsoft's library for reading a xml file msxml

In your question you wrote that you have added a path to the registry. So you already know the answer to the first question. The solution for that question answers the second question.

If there is still something unclear, you should comment the answer asking for clarification or edit your question rather than posting a similar question again.
