(background: although I am not a Mapbender developer, I have for a long 
time distributed Windows packages for the MapServer and Mapbender 
community, through MS4W http://ms4w.com and am very familiar with 
configuration issues)

I believe your error is due to your PHP version.  Only PHP 5.6 and newer 
allows for importing of functions through namespaces (see 
http://php.net/manual/en/language.namespaces.importing.php); that might 
explain the error with getVstype()

Short answer: maybe try again using a more recent PHP version.

(smiling at me answering a GeoServer question ha, it really is one 

Hope this helps.
