You need a dashboard (a Dashboard instance) to be created to use the Dashboard.LoadFromXml method.

To load a dashboard from a stream, use another overload of the LoadFromXml method that takes a stream parameter. You can use the DashboardDesigner.LoadDashboard / DashboardViewer.LoadDashboard methods as an alternative to the Dashboard.LoadFromXml method.

To save a dashboard to a file or stream, use the Dashboard.SaveToXml method.
