That's because your path is not legal on Windows.  You want to use

file = r'C:\Andy\XSL\test.xml'

The 'r', for "raw" lets you use single backslashes, otherwise they would 
have to be doubled.

parse_resource is not finding the file because of the bad path, and so 
you get an error (too bad the error is not more informative).
