Can web references "break" if changes are made to an already installed web application?

Hello! I have a problem that I hope someone could help me with. Recently a
web application was ordered from a software developer and installed on the
server of my working place. This application uses a web service that runs on
the same server. My job was to make changes to a couple of forms which were
then put to the server to replace existing files. Now, when these forms are
executed they seem to have trouble finding the web service and the
application crashes. So I wondered if it could be possible that web
references could disappear if changes are made like this? When I load the
modified web forms in Visual Studio and try to add a web reference, Visual
Studio gives the error Directory listing denied "error 403" when I try to
search for web services running on the server. Is the problem within my
code, with the web service or with the server? Thank you already in advance
if someone could help.

If you could describe the symptomes more precisely than "seem to have
trouble finding the web service" and the error messare more precisely
than "crashes", that would be helpful.

HTTP 403 is "Access forbidden". It's normal for a server to have
directory listing turned off, so that is not surprising at all. You have
to specify the exact address of the web service.
