if you want only the difference in seconds, you can use time() function:

time_t t1 = time(NULL);
//do some tasks here
time_t t2 = time(NULL);

cout << "Lapse:" << (t2-t1) << "seconds" << endl;

for milliseconds use GetTickCount();

DWORD t1 = GetTickCount();
//do some tasks here
DWORD t2 = GetTickCount();

cout << "Lapse:" << (t2-t1) << "miliseconds" << endl;
