When installing, it is very important that (if you are using the .zip) 
your server must have the C++ Redistributable installed on it 
beforehand: execute the local file /ms4w/tmp/vcredist_x86.exe 
(alternatively if you use MS4W's setup.exe installer this is done 

As always please provide your requests for enhancements and issues 
through the MS4W tracker (so the feedback is not lost or forgotten): 
https://ms4w.com/trac/  You can also contact me directly for support.

Thank you all for sharing your spatial information with MS4W !!
