Thanks to Joel for the quick reply.  

I have been unzipping the maplab.zip file that I downloaded to C:\ from the site Joel mentioned.  I'm  not getting the expected results (as listed in the documentation).  Has anyone else experienced this?  I'm wondering if I need to set some sort of parameter in Winzip, or some sort of directory read/write parameter.  

I checked the c:\ms4w folder and discovered that it and all subdirectories under ms4w are read-only.  Tried to change that property and XP wouldn't let me do it. Any ideas?

I've installed ms4w under C:\ and have it running.  I've downloaded maplab.zip and have been attempting to use WinZip to extract the file.  I'm getting a maplab directory where I direct the extract, but am not getting the new directory within /ms4w/apps or any new httpd_*.comf file at /ms4w/httpd.d/httpd_*.comf.  I'll add versions if necessary, but I've been using latest ms4w and maplab.   I'm having the same problems with Chameleon.  

Any ideas?  Feeling a bit rudimentary here.

Hey Andrew,

I think that you mean to download the ms4w package of maplab and 

You can find it at:


When you extract maplab or chameleon, simply extract it to your C:/ 
drive and everything should work fine.  It will put all of the files 
where they are suppose to be.
