using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.IO;

namespace FileIO
    class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)
            FileStream file = new FileStream("HELLO.txt",FileMode.Open,FileAccess.Read);
            StreamReader str = new StreamReader(file);

You didn't proved the full path of "HELLO.txt". Lets say, if its located in "C:\" then use this:

If so, then use this:

FileStream(@"C:\HELLO.txt", FileMode.Open,FileAccess.Read);

Or if its located in the same path as the executable. Then use this:

FileStream file = new FileStream(Path.Combine(Application.StartupPath, "HELLO.txt"), FileMode.Open,FileAccess.Read);

Also, if you only want to read the txt then you can use an alternative way:

string hello = File.OpenText(Path.Combine(Application.StartupPath, "HELLO.txt")).ReadToEnd()


thanks dude, your awesome
