Hi,
In the article mentioned above he has mentioned in doevents
 3.  Add 2 lines of code before the intensive processing begins to set the thread priority:

          SetThreadPriority(GetCurrentThread, THREAD_PRIORITY_HIGHEST)
          SetPriorityClass(GetCurrentProcess, HIGH_PRIORITY_CLASS)  

Can you please inform me where do I add this?


SetThreadPriority(GetCurrentThread, THREAD_PRIORITY_HIGHEST)
          SetPriorityClass(GetCurrentProcess, HIGH_PRIORITY_CLASS)

Anywhere after createThread and before you start your thread processing/loop.

You have to give a handle to a thread as a parameter, in your case, getCurrentThread is used to get the handle of the currently executing thread, so whatever thread is running that code, is the one that will get its priority changed. Is that what you asked for? I can have a look at the article later, but setting a thread priority that high is not that common, but then again, I have not read the article yet.
