Hello Thomas,

I am very glad that you are interested in testing the latest Mapbender 
with MS4W.  In fact the Mapbender development team recently posted a 
Mapbender 2.5.2 package for MS4W[1].  MS4W 3.0 contains many changes, 
including a custom built PHP.  If you go to 
you will notice that many modules are loaded by default now (pgsql, 
sqlite, mysql, etc).  It would be excellent if you could test that new 
package and the package's install notes[2] and report any issues in 
either by filing a ticket in the MS4W tracker[3].  Thanks!
