GetSystemTimeAsFileTime RRS feed

  • Question

  • Recently, it seems a Windows 7 update from August of 2014 was responsible for reducing the time resolution accuracy of GetSystemTimeAsFileTime via API and setting it at milliseconds rather than sub-milliseconds as before.  This is causing issues when reviewing personal application logs that have a sub-millisecond timestamp on them and resulting in randomly sorted records and incorrect investigations.  I was hoping to learn which update explicitly did this, because currently I am only left with a system restore to before Aug1 as my option whereas I would prefer to simply uninstall the aforementioned update.

  • This is an issue more appropriately discussed in one of the Microsoft Developer Network (MSDN) forums found @ http://msdn.microsoft.com/developer-communities-msdn where they delve into the inner workings of the operating system.
