  • The location of the XML file doesn't really matter, as long as you set the correct path. I suggest putting your path in some local configuration file though (even set the XML on a local website or fileserver next to CRM). And yes, you can access any file using plugins, since its an extension.

    string path = openFileDialog1.FileName; 
    FileStream READER = new FileStream(path, FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read, FileShare.ReadWrite);               
    System.Xml.XmlDocument CompSpecs = new System.Xml.XmlDocument();
    System.Xml.XmlNodeList NodeList = CompSpecs.GetElementsByTagName("CompSpecs");
