Sorry about that.  Works for me.

Maybe something else in your .emacs is interfering somehow.  Try starting with
emacs -Q.

You don't mention what Emacs version you use, but it works for me in all
versions, from 20 through the latest 24 dev snapshot.

And of course `C-h f w32-register-hot-key' suggests that it should work.

Just try it first with emacs -Q.  Type that in buffer *scratch* and use C-x C-e
to evaluate it.

I assume you mean that you want to use M-TAB to switch between MS Windows
applications.  If you do not then you need not worry that you are "interfering
with Windows", IMHO.  All that does is give the key to Emacs instead of Windows.

Someone else can perhaps help you with that.
