Yes, you actually have to compile PHP with --with-swf , provided you get the
libswf from the link given in the php manual.
Alas, compiling PHP is not a trivial thing to do on Win32 (you need Visual
Studio, I guess).

And I am not sure the closed source libswf.so is available in Win32.

But ! with php 4.0.5 recently released, you have a new binding with an LGPL
library called Ming.
I haven't tried it yet, but it seems very promising, and you might it
working on Win32 (but I don't know if it's possible)
