VS 2003

Problem:  Hosted website has changed URL of websvc.   There are no changes to the parameters.  
I have a VS2005 windows app that works fine with the new URL.  I have a VS2003 web app that crashes with the new URL.   The production web app runs fine on the old URL.   If I take the source, modify the URL, it crashes with the  error shown below..    
If I change the URL back to where it was, it runs fine after the build.

I do have VS2010, but right now, I just need to get the VS2003 running.   If all I changed was the URL at the following places, why would be be getting a crash?


When I build the code, I use Rebuild Solution.

Instead of changing the URL in those mappings, you should be able to just update it in your config file. Point that URL to the new location and everything *should work just fine.
