Actually, I don't think MS Workbench has been actively maintained in 
years, the last release on the SourceForge site dates from 2001, which 
is around the last time we heard of it. This was in the days of 
MapServer 3.4-3.6, so even if you could build MapScript/Tcl, it is 
unlikely that MS Workbench would be of much help with recent MapServer
