Bug #29800 did not pursue it, but I would like to go forward with resolving it.

I have a strongly-typed assembly that I added to the GAC. By the way, the simplest way to get the token information is to use gacutil with the /l switch.

To fully reproduce it, you can download the DLLs I am using:

Reproduce code:
$dotobj = new DOTNET("watin.core, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b26a14bb9ccc0290, processorArchitecture=MSIL", "WatiN.Core.IE"); 
$dotobj = null;

Expected result:
It should open a web page.

Actual result:
PHP Fatal error:  Uncaught exception 'com_exception' with message 'Failed to instantiate .Net object [CreateInstance] [0x80131604] ' in C:\PHP5\wtest.php:3
Stack trace:
#0 C:\PHP5\wtest.php(3): dotnet->dotnet('watin.core, Ver...', 'WatiN.Core.IE')
#1 {main}
  thrown in C:\PHP5\wtest.php on line 3

It's hard to tell why the class can't be instantiated without
having access to the class (or its documentation).  If this issue
is still relevant, please provide the DLL again.  Thanks.
