For this program:

namespace GetFiles
    class Program

if run in windows 7 with .NET,we have (correct output).Like: 

if run in windows XP (Whitout SP) with Mono version 2.10.1 Build 2,we have
error.Like  : 
E:\>mono GetFiles.exe

if run in linux ubuntu 10.10 with Mono version 2.6.7,throw Exception.we have :
