Windows7 or XP affected with DST RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am requiring information regarding the possibility of Windows 7 Enterprise not updating for Day Light Saving and possibly reverting back to non day light saving time, therefore affecting the time stamp in documents.

    Australia reflects Daylight Saving between October and March.

    For Example:
    A document created/modified in the time stamp/properties on 14 February 2010 9:19am is correct or incorrect?

    Several documents modified between 5:53pm and 5:58pm on 12 February 2010 in the time stamp/properties is correct or incorrect?

    If Day Light Saving affects these two examples, the actual time should read 10:19am and 6:53-6:58pm.....???

    The computer used is connected to a server that automatically updates for Day Light Saving, etc - I do not have the access (only administators do) to change the time and date settings

  • Hi,

    You should install this update for DST.

    February 2010 cumulative time zone update for Windows operating systems

    If it is installed, and your system time is synced with Internet time server, there should be no time issues.
