call (but need more context, really...)
Explanation:
If you're talking about an "Aufruf" in a programming context, say, "eine Prozedur aufrufen", then the word would be "call" (to call a procedure/a procedure call). However, there can be various other translations depending on the context. A complete sentence would be helpful.

agree  Michael Sebold: Again, the context issue, but this is most likely. You can also call functions - a major premise in C, C+, C++..

Explanation:
again, context is a bit vague. I take a guess here based on the fact that you're talking about a computer manual.
