Hi Ian,

One quick solution could be to not use any projections in your mapfile.

Also, MS4W's Apache instance has the PROJ_LIB environment variable set 
in in httpd.conf, maybe your configuration does not?  Or, you could also 
set that variable in the MAP object of the mapfile.

Just my quick thoughts...maybe others can comment.
