As of PHP 4.2.0, this function doesn't appear to do anything useful (nor does it even work). Instead, use w32api_register_function to register your function and then simply call the function you registered just like you would call any normal PHP function. For example, the following snippet will display a standard messagebox:

w32api_register_function("User32.dll",
                         "MessageBoxA",
                         "long");
MessageBoxA(NULL,
            "Hello World!",
            "PHP MessageBox",
            0);
