I believe the epsg file is a product of the PROJ4 library/distribution. I
did notice that the current epsg file used in MS4W (2.x) is different from
the epsg file distributed in PROJ 4.4.9 (e.g. the new code for BC Albers,
3005, is missing in the former but present in the later). So I think PROJ4
(or at least the newest PROJ4 epsg file) needs to be upgraded in MS4W.

For now, download PROJ 4.4.9 and check if your projection is defined in the
provided epsg file. If it is, replace the MS4W epsg file with that one.
