Please have a look at the example in the help file for _Date_Time_CompareFileTime.

You have to deliver two pointers to a $tagFILETIME structure.

But .. why don't you use FileGetTime? Something like:

$file = FileOpen("c:\temp\test.txt", 10)
FileClose($file)
sleep(500)

If FileGetTime("c:\temp\test.txt",0,1) > FileGetTime(@Windowsdir & "\Notepad.exe",0,1) Then
    MsgBox(0,"","Modification date/time of 'c:\temp\test.txt' > 'Notepad.exe'")
Else
    MsgBox(0,"","Modification date/time of 'Notepad.exe' > 'c:\temp\test.txt'")
EndIf
