CTime tNow = CTime::GetCurrentTime();
CString strNow = tNow.Format("%m/%d/%Y %H:%M %p");

strNow will contain the date and time in the desired format.

Just a comment,

Are you sure you want it to be formatted that way?
Doesn't the user of your program expect the format to correspond with his regional settings?

If yes, then just use the most simple form of Format():

COleDateTime odt = COleDateTime::GetCurrentTime();
CString strNow = odt.Format();

Bye.
