Hello Behrooz,

On the MS4W downloads page 
(http://www.maptools.org/ms4w/index.phtml?page=downloads.html) there is 
a list of applications that are pre-configured for MS4W.  As you 
mentioned, the conf file and application folders will be placed 
magically into their appropriate directories, as long as you extract the 
file to the root of the directory where MS4W is installed.  The file 
that you need to download is actually named "maplab_ms4w-2.2.zip".  Is 
it possible that you tried to install the non-ms4w package for maplab?
