Giving a particular application more CPU share

Hi !
I had developed a simulator application which is running fine except that it's a bit slow. I want to make it around 5 times faster then it is running now. So, is there a way so that this application can be given control of more CPU percentage or say a higher priority among all the applications on windows. The same application is also there on MACINTOSH systems and it runs very fast. I had observed that when this app. runs on mac it takesover all the mac resources and runs very fast.
I also want my application to do the same, as CWinApp is derived from CWinThread so I think that there might be some way out.

Thanx in advance,
