A library that allows to start a real time process, that is to say, a process
that does a thing every T millisecons.

Connect further...control easier

With the ATEN CE624, you can now enjoy a high-quality visual experience powered by HDBaseT technology and the convenience of a single Cat6 cable to transmit uncompressed video with zero latency and multi-streaming for dual-view applications where remote access is required.

Sorry, you lost me..  Not sure what type of program or applications you are looking for.  Might wanna try the Microsoft Libraries or provide a little more detailed information ie  visual basic runtime libraries?..

You're very unlikely to find such a thing because Windows 98 is not a real-time OS--it can take hundreds of milliseconds to respond to a hardware interrupt under some circumstances, making it useless for any sort of real-time programming.

Better, but still not capable of a guaranteed response time.

Only in DOS or Linux?

There are specialist real-time operating systems available--however, DOS or Linux would certainly have better response times than most Windows variants.

I still don't know what you mean--could you be clearer?

Is possible to use DOS interruptions in Windows98 in order to simulate real time
timers?

No, because the DOS interrupts in Windows 98 are intercepted and virtualised by the Windows Virtual Machine Manager--this is why you don't get real-time response to hardware interrupts.

Out of interest, why do you need real-time support under Win98? Do you actually *need* real-time response, or are you just looking for a normal timer with a resolution better than the standard Windows SetTimer() call?
