Thanks for the reply Mark

the web service is picking up the web.config file from the root of the
website which uses the themes. I've created a virtual directory for the
webservice.

which is why im stumped

Looks very much as if you have copied files from a website / web
application project into your web service project. Web services do not
need to know anything about how the data they provide will be displayed,
so remove any and all references to themes, styles etc...

Why is it doing that?
I've created a virtual directory for the webservice.

Have you forgotten to add a web.config to the web service project...?

Thats there too
