Check if the following file path exists on your system - "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\DevServer\10.0\~\bin\XMLStaticData.xml". Most likely, you are trying to read a file that does not exist.
You could also be trying to read the file from an incorrect location.

In addition, you can check if the file exists[^] using simple File operations before trying to open the file.

I understand your problem, as its a web application you don't have any EXE, when you run it runs under VS temporary Web Server which local is that where your appication is searching for that XML file.

In web application when ever you try to access any local resource please Server.MapPath("[Path]")
It will solve your problem.
