Timer registers access


Being newbie in WinCE dvpt, perhaps my question will appear stupid.

I use DigiConnectCore9C test plateform on WinCE 6.0.
I would like to use the internal Timers of the CPU, to create counters. I saw on documents how to configure GPIO, WatchDog,… but I saw nothing on Timers and others features.
Coming from dvpt of softwares on µcontroller (MC68hc16) without real-time OS, it was easy to access to registers to configure internal devices.
On WinCE, it seems very difficult. Could you please help me in my quest<,

Thank you by advance.
Best regards.
