Another option. For example for Chrome.exe application:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options\chrome.exe\PerfOptions]
"CpuPriorityClass"=dword:00000006

1 Idle
2 Normal
3 High
4 RealTime (n.a.)
5 Below Normal
6 Above Normal

Cannot set RealTime with this value, only with Task Manager.
