Select the file in Explorer and right click.
Select "Quick View"
The functions you can call are listed under the heading "Resident-Name Table (Exported Functions)"
This won't give you the parameters, though.

This isn'T enough... I need to know all the decleration information.

Sorry, I had clicked answer, I meant to click comment.

About the only thing I can think of to get the full declaration info is to contact the company that created the DLL.

Try to add a reference to the dll and use object browser to know  the sintax and arguments of the functions.

Open that DLL in Win NT Explorer and right click then select Quick View to see the functions and all for a selected DLL.
For this you need Windows NT operating system.

This is what I had said originally.  You don't need NT, Win95 or Win98 will do fine.  And even with NT, it still won't show you the parameters required.
