Good news! I got a new fresh Windows 8.1 VM with Visual Studio 2015. I'm now able to work on this issue.

I wrote a patch: time_precise.patch.

Resolution computed in Python by

GetSystemTimePreciseAsFileTime(): 715 ns
GetSystemTimeAsFileTime(): 14 ms

Obviously, the resolution is better...

GetSystemTimePreciseAsFileTime() uses internally the QueryPerformanceCounter() so I chose to use QueryPerformanceFrequency() to fill time.get_clock_info('time').resolution, same code than time.get_clock_info('perf_counter').resolution
