Look in the registry under HKEY_Current_User -> Control Panel -> International You find all information needed there... You can find out the timezone code by using the MSDN cd's from Microsoft or consult their WebSite....

As far as I know, there is no unit in Delphi which declares TIME_ZONE_INFORMATION.
However, you can create your own unit and declare it by yourself.

In order to do so i attached the declaration in C from the
microsoft header file called winbase.h (found in the visual c++ package)
You need to translate it to Delphi.

#define TIME_ZONE_ID_INVALID (DWORD)0xFFFFFFFF
.
.
typedef struct _TIME_ZONE_INFORMATION {
    LONG Bias;
    WCHAR StandardName[ 32 ];
    SYSTEMTIME StandardDate;
    LONG StandardBias;
    WCHAR DaylightName[ 32 ];
    SYSTEMTIME DaylightDate;
    LONG DaylightBias;
} TIME_ZONE_INFORMATION, *PTIME_ZONE_INFORMATION, *LPTIME_ZONE_INFORMATION;

WINBASEAPI
BOOL
WINAPI
SystemTimeToTzSpecificLocalTime(
    LPTIME_ZONE_INFORMATION lpTimeZoneInformation,
    LPSYSTEMTIME lpUniversalTime,
    LPSYSTEMTIME lpLocalTime
    );

WINBASEAPI
DWORD
WINAPI
GetTimeZoneInformation(
    LPTIME_ZONE_INFORMATION lpTimeZoneInformation
    );

WINBASEAPI
BOOL
WINAPI
SetTimeZoneInformation(
    CONST TIME_ZONE_INFORMATION *lpTimeZoneInformation
    );
.
