Yeah, NT had a 9.8 something ms granularity, that was the smallest wait.

You can as you say change this on later OSs, but it isnt recommended.


What I have done is to use a loop count in code (the code can work out the number to count up to to for a given time period at start up).

It is interruptible, you can set the code priority (critical section etc), and it gave quite accurate timing in the end. Of course it does depend on how much hardware activity there is that really will steal the CPU from you. But in general it was pretty good.
