Like

char* pc = "42";

DWORD* pdw = (DWORD*) pc;
DWORD dw = (DWORD) pc;

However, without knowing what you are exactly trying to accomplish, use that with caution.

The way as outlined above. Since that has to be speified whe calling 'waveInOpen()', use it like

waveInOpen( phwi,uDeviceID,&wfx,dwCallback,(DWORD) "test,fdwOpen);

and get it back in the callback as

void CALLBACK my_waveInProc(
  HWAVEIN hwi,      
  UINT uMsg,        
  DWORD_PTR dwInstance,  
  DWORD_PTR dwParam1,    
  DWORD_PTR dwParam2    
)
{
  char* psz = (char*) dwInstance;
}
