Hi Charley,

Are you running MapServer from the MS4W base Package?

I would recommend the MS4W package because it installs MapServer 4.1 
CGI, php_mapscript_41.dll and Apache.  You can get the latest PHP 
Mapscript 4.2 for MS4W and the MS4W package at:


you simply have to extract both zip files to the root of the drive.
