No... the LCL works and a lot of things can be currently done, but the 
TTimer component is not implemented due to differences between win32 and 
wince api(s).

Reading this: http://www.rainer-keuchel.de/wince/wince-api-diffs.txt

You can read:


The milli member might be zero. This is strange as GetTickCount()
returns millis (but since start of system).

That is (MAYBE) one of the differences that caused the fact that ttimer is still not working in wince.

There is a Roozbeh's mail in wich he says that he's working on it there:  http://www.mail-archive.com/lazarus@miraclec.com/msg12963.html
