I am getting the following exception:

Thinktecture.Tools.Web.Services.MetadataLoadingException: An error occured

I have my webservice, and I have another webservice whose client is in an
external project. But still getting the above error. Anyone got any ideas
or hints.

You need to give the web service authentication user the rights to a file for the target folder.  Normally, the user is ASPNET, but under certain circumstances that user can change to IUSR_<machine>.
