As Bart mentioned on the MapServer list, it turns out GMap for MS4W was 
way out of date (sorry for this).  I've repackaged the latest GMap for 
MS4W, and you can grab it from:


Now you should be able to extract this file ('gmap_ms4w.zip') to the 
root of your installation drive and all should be fine.

thanks for pointing this out.

I was given a link to dl a more recent version of GMap, gmap-ms40.zip from http://dl.maptools.org/dl/ ..my question now... how can I get this to work with the ms4w that I have installed. If someone can help, that'd be great. Thank You.
