Set System Time NT

Does someone have an easy reliable way of setting system time in NT and Win95 including AdjustTokenPrivileges in NT.  I'm just not getting it.

Thanks

How can I set the clock system time and date in a program  with Delphi 2.0

This works for us:


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

//******************************************************************************
//Public function SetPCSystemTime changes the system date and time.
//Parameter(s): tDati  The new date and time
//Returns:      True if successful
//              False if not
//******************************************************************************
function SetPCSystemTime(tDati: TDateTime): Boolean;
var
   tSetDati: TDateTime;
   vDatiBias: Variant;
   tTZI: TTimeZoneInformation;
   tST: TSystemTime;
begin
   GetTimeZoneInformation(tTZI);
   vDatiBias := tTZI.Bias / 1440;
   tSetDati := tDati + vDatiBias;
   with tST do
   begin
        wYear := StrToInt(FormatDateTime('yyyy', tSetDati));
        wMonth := StrToInt(FormatDateTime('mm', tSetDati));
        wDay := StrToInt(FormatDateTime('dd', tSetDati));
        wHour := StrToInt(FormatDateTime('hh', tSetDati));
        wMinute := StrToInt(FormatDateTime('nn', tSetDati));
        wSecond := StrToInt(FormatDateTime('ss', tSetDati));
        wMilliseconds := 0;
   end;
   SetPCSystemTime := SetSystemTime(tST);
end;
