Hi Kirby,

That error is usually a DLL problem.

at the command line, run mapserver  ...  C:\..\..\mapserv.exe

If there are any missing dll's,  it will tell you. If it does not, 
then restart your computer.  WinXP Pro SP2 seems to be a little more
fussy than older versions.

Restarting after a fresh install has fixed that problem for me a couple times.

If that doesnt help, then use the version of MapServer from maptools.org/dl
