Exception thrown when creating an instance of a web service

Hi,

I have a peculiar problem. When running my Windows Forms application (C# 2.0) from within VS2005, any call to my Web Service works as it should.
However, when running my compiled .exe, an exception is thrown (see below). The .exe file is built using NAnt.. so my first guess would be that I'm perhaps missing some dll.. but I can't seem to find a solution.

Any help is highly appretiated.
Exception:    vid System.Xml.Serialization.Compiler.Compile(Assembly parent, String ns, XmlSerializerCompilerParameters xmlParameters, Evidence evidence)
   vid System.Xml.Serialization.TempAssembly.GenerateAssembly(XmlMapping[] xmlMappings, Type[] types, String defaultNamespace, Evidence evidence, XmlSerializerCompilerParameters parameters, Assembly assembly, Hashtable assemblies)
   vid System.Xml.Serialization.TempAssembly..ctor(XmlMapping[] xmlMappings, Type[] types, String defaultNamespace, String location, Evidence evidence)
   vid System.Xml.Serialization.XmlSerializer.GetSerializersFromCache(XmlMapping[] mappings, Type type)
   vid System.Xml.Serialization.XmlSerializer.FromMappings(XmlMapping[] mappings, Type type)
   vid System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapClientType..ctor(Type type)
   vid System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapHttpClientProtocol..ctor()
   vid ShrinkMyPhoto.Service.se.diod.services.MailService..ctor()
   vid ShrinkMyPhoto.Service.ChooseImageSizeService.SendEmail(String user, String email, String regkey, List`1 images, String mailfrom, String mailto, String mailsubject, String mailbody)

The exception is thrown when I try and create an instance of the web service.

1) I haven't seen that exception, but there doesn't appear to be any real exception message with the stack trace.

2) Is ShrinkMyPhoto.Service.ChooseImageSizeService your web service?

3) What is happening in the SendEmail method?

2) ShrinkMyPhoto.Service is a class library. ChooseImageSizeService is an ordinary class.

3) Within the SendEmail method, what I do is that I create an object of my Web Service
do some image serialization and then call my web service method.

The thing is that when I'm debugging, it won't get pass my first line of code which is:
MailService mailService = new MailService();

Now, MailService is my Web Service, which means that I can't event create an instance
of it.

Can you answer #1 better, and give the full exception message, and not the stack trace?

Sorry about that. I'm feeling a bit dense here, thought I'd outputed the exception message but apparently I had not.
I fixed that and now it's telling me a dll file missing, Should be ok now as soon as I add a reference to it.

Thanks for your time.
