Yes. Here is a sample code that does it (tested).
#include <windows.h> /* for some specific Windoz calls */
HANDLE WinId ;
WinId = GetCurrentProcess ( ) ; /* get my Windows HANDLE */
SetPriorityClass ( WinId , REALTIME_PRIORITY_CLASS ) ; /* set priority to REAL TIME CLASS */
The 4 defined priority classes are: NORMAL_PRIORITY_CLASS,
IDLE_PRIORITY_CLASS, HIGH_PRIORITY_CLASS, REALTIME_PRIORITY_CLASS.
Note. The include is from an old program, it might have changed to
<w32api/windows.h>, I did not compile it lately, and I can't do it here.
