Sir:

Sorry, but there is no prioritizing scheme like that in Win95, and VEE could
not impose one on it.  There is prioritizing in Win95 based on process
privileges, but that simply means that things like kernel calls, driver calls,
and interrupt handlers operate at a higher priority than applications.
Applications themselves have no control over priority.

If you have more questions, let us know.
