I am having major problems getting any mapserver applications to work. I
have been searching the ms4w archives for answers, and none of the
responses to this problem seem to be helping me. It seems that all of the
applications use a script called php_mapscript_44.dll, which is not loading
correctly for unknown reasons. Here is the full text of the error I'm

Warning: dl(): Unable to load dynamic library
'/ms4w/Apache/php/extensions/php_mapscript_44.dll' - The specified module
could not be found. in C:\ms4w\Apache\htdocs\phpinfo_mapscript_44.php on
line 2.

I'm getting this error in all of the mapserver applications, but in this
case, I got the error by clicking the phpinfo link next to
php_mapscript_44.dll which is under Features on the mapserver index page. I
have downloaded and used Dependency Walker, and I have managed to get rid
of all of the yellow highlighted problems by copying various dll files into
the php/extensions folder. I also have copies of these files in the cgi-bin
and system32 folders just in case.

I'm basically out of ideas... any help?
