Cannot Open Shapefile

I have a problem with opening shape file. I have a shape file in "C:\Shared\sample\sample.shp" (Of course the other files with extension dbf, prj, sbn, sbx, shp.xml and shx are in the same directory.) When I run the code below, I receive the exception called COMException was unhandled "Exception from HRESULT: 0x80040228".

I am running this code in Windows 7 Professional 64bit, ArcGIS 10 Engine and Visual Studio project target platform is x86.

If you have any idea, about the problem, please help me.

Thanks in advance.

Type factory_type = Type.GetTypeFromProgID("esriDataSourcesFile.ShapefileWorkspaceFactory");

IWorkspaceFactory workspace_factory = (IWorkspaceFactory)Activator.CreateInstance(factory_type);

IFeatureWorkspace workspace = (IFeatureWorkspace)workspace_factory.OpenFromFile(@"C:\Shared\sample\", 0);

IFeatureClass feature_class = workspace.OpenFeatureClass(System.IO.Path.GetFileName(sample);

ESRI.ArcGIS.Carto.IFeatureLayer feature_layer = new FeatureLayerClass();

feature_layer.FeatureClass = (IFeatureClass)feature_class;
