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;

        'SeSystemtimePrivilege',
        True ) )then
  begin
    GetLocalTime( st );

    //
    // change time using st structure
    // for example, to 10:30pm
    //
    st.wHour := 22;
    st.wMinute := 30;

    SetLocalTime( st );
    // or :
    // SetSystemTime( st );

    SetPrivilege(
      'SeSystemtimePrivilege',
      False );
