Thanks Brent, rude of me not to mention GeoMOOSE, Mapbender, 
OpenLayers3, and the other applications that are already configured for 
download with MS4W.  Puneet, you can see more about those pre-configured 
applications here: http://ms4w.com/download.html

MS4W distributes about 1TB of data and applications each month, for the 
MapServer, GeoMOOSE, Mapbender, OpenLayers,etc. communities.

If you have questions about MS4W, you can also join its dedicated 
mailing list at https://lists.ms4w.com/mailman/listinfo/ms4w-users
