You can use dbTimer, or clock (include time.h); they both return the same thing (a millisecond counter).

Simply waiting for two seconds, you would check dbTimer() / clock(), store its value to a variable and wait until dbTimer() / clock() returns a value that is equal to or greater than the stored time stamp + 2000 milliseconds.
Something like this:

Of course you probably will want to do other things in that while loop, or else your program will just freeze until the two seconds have passed. It is also a busy wait so it will be more accurate at the cost of using your CPU to the max - if very exact timing isn't necessary you should call Sleep(1) in the loop to allow other processes to use the CPU while your program is just waiting.
