    1 second = 1000ms

    1 minute = 60 * 1000
    60000.

    Ordinary timer control can have max interval of 60000 ms (1 minute).

    Timer is a very unreliable control..... 1000 miliseconds does not mean 1 second....its speed is determined by the CPU load, and the code that it has to perform...

    The best test is to make a timer control, set interval to 1000, make a textbox and put "0" in it and have the timer do this:

    Text1.Text = Int(Text1.Text) + 1

    Follow the system time and whatch the incrementations... after a minute you will see a difference of a few sconds.... and the more time passes the bigger the offset gets...

    I recommend using the Advanced Timer control from CCRP, it's free:

    For majority applications VB's Timer control is just fine.
    For more presize time calculations there is a GetTickCount API function.
