You can try the following windows base functions:
GetLocalTime()
GetSystemTime()

You can also try:
CTime::GetCurrentTime()

// example for CTime::GetCurrentTime
CTime t = CTime::GetCurrentTime();

You can look at MSDN for details on CTime class.


If you use the GetSystemTime, you can say
SYSTEMTIME SystemTime;
GetSystemTime(&SystemTime);

Again, MSDN on CD or microsoft website has details of the struct SYSTEMTIME.

typedef struct _SYSTEMTIME {  // st
    WORD wYear;
    WORD wMonth;
    WORD wDayOfWeek;
    WORD wDay;
    WORD wHour;
    WORD wMinute;
    WORD wSecond;
    WORD wMilliseconds;
} SYSTEMTIME;
