The problem/error is probably comming from your webservice you are calling

I had this exact same issue. It took a lot of digging but I finally
solved my problem. In IIS, I went to the properties for the virtual
directory giving me trouble and set the application protection to Low.
I'm not sure why this works, but it appears to have fixed the issue.

i dont think that helps me because my application is a windows application and not a web base.
If it helps i'm retrieveing data from a SQL database (v2000)
