calllib function for dll in Matlab - Init USMC

hello everybody,

i am trying to control a stepper motor in a windows dll by using functions.
The library is loaded with loadlibrary('USMCDLL','USMCDLL.h');
and i can also look up the functions with libfunctionsview('USMCDLL');
Now i have to call the Init function as the user manual says:

The USMC_Init function initializes dll and/or searches for connected devices. It must be called before any other function of the dll.

DWORD USMC_Init( USMC_Devices &Str );

-> I tried it with the libstruct function - explained in the external interface in Matlab:
and than try to call the Init function with calllib.

calllib('USMCDLL', 'USMC_Init', Devices_st);

I get always the value 4.294967295000000e+09 as return and I don't know what these means.
When i try to call other functions to move the stepper motor it does not work.
I think the stepper is not initialized.
I don't know what i am doing wrong.
Thanks for any help
