  • Net time command has been deprecated for a while - on a Windows 7 system you should use w32tm /resync /nowait instead.

  • Ok, but in ms-dos don't have the executable w32tm.

  • Run this from the dos machine to sync to the win 7 machine.

    net time \\computer /set

    computer is the name of your win 7 machine

    if you want to sync your win 7 to the dos machine run w32tm /resync /nowait from the win 7 machine.

    The problem is that the command net time \\machineWinSeven dosn't work, give me the error 1: an internal error occurred.

    But if the command is net time \\machineXP work succesfully.

    I Supose that is for the w33time of Windows Seven. Can anybody help me?

  • I have the same problem trying to get an MS-DOS 6.22 client to obtain the time from a Windows 7 PC and a Windows 2008 Server.

    Hvalin had same error.
