Hello Greg,

With a fresh MS4W install, you can verify that PHP is installed by first 
going to the MS4W home page on localhost in your browser 
( and then you will see a "PHP 5.3.x" link there; 
please click on that and it will execute a phpinfo command for you and 
you should see a "MapScript" section listed on that response.
