Are you using Apache or IIS? If Apache, then follow the instructions on the
MS4W website for invoking FastCGI. Notes I have are as below:
Enable FastCGI by uncommenting out the line "LoadModule fcgid_module
/modules/mod_fcgid.so" in d:\ms4w\apache\conf\httpd.conf and also the
following section in the the same file:
1. Mapserver via FastCGI
i. In IIS Manager (IIS7/7.5), click your website then double-click
Handler Mappings in the centre panel.
ii. In the Actions Pane, click Add Module Mapping then set the
1. Request path: *.exe
2. Module: FastCgiModule
3. Executable: d:\<YourPath>\cgi-bin\mapserv.exe
4. Name: Mapserver via FastCGI
5. Click on Request Restrictions and set the following:
a. Mapping Tab: Check "Invoke hander . ", then set for "File".
b. Verbs Tab: "One of the following .", enter "GET, HEAD, POST".
c. Access Tab: Check "Execute".
d. Whilst the CGI-exe handler mapping is highlighted, click on Edit
feature permissions in the right hand panel then ensure that read, script
and execute are checked.
I haven't had much success running a full 64 bit version all the way through
and have opted, so far, to run 32 bit in the 64 bit environment.
I hope this helps.

I have MS4W installed on Windows 2008 Server which is 64 bit. I was looking
at the instructions to enable fastcgi. According to the instructions I need
to install the Visual C++ 2010 SP1 Redistributable Package. I just would
like to check if I should install the 32 bit version of Visual C++
Redistributable or the 64 bit version.
