RadTreeView for WinForms does not support the same XML format as the ASP.NET version out of the box. However, you can easily create a few methods which manually load and save the nodes from/to XML using any format you desire. I am attaching a sample project which demonstrates this.
Hope this will help. Let me know if you need anything else.
