I tried all examples of setsystemtime api [AllApi example and even from microsoft] but none of them set my system date and time exactly what i write in code. i tried setting to 1:28 am it changes it to 7: pm or some thing like that. specially time [hour and minute] are not at all prescise.

I use windows98 OS.

Any help greatly appreciated.

SetSystemTime will set your clock to UTC (Greenwich) time.  You can set your system time using the time statement.  Example

Time = TimeSerial(15, 35, 22)

Sets the time to 3:35:22 PM
