Save and restore swimlane layout in xml

hello,
i am evaluating winforms nwoods version version(4.1.0.2) and trying to create a bpmn style app , using the swimlane example as reference.
.I cannot seem to save the layout in xml format and restore it later on.
I have seen the xml examples and the following post :

I have added my sample app in vs 2008 using vb.net showing my problem.

Thanks in advance
Giannis
