How to set the system date and time on a Pocket PC within eVB program?

I want to be able to program the system date and time within my eVB program, as opposed to shelling out to settings/clock. I don't care about the interface, just the commands to set the system date/time and what the variable format needs to be in. It seems like a simple task, but I couldn't find any reference to do this. Any ideas?

you an use the Date function, to set the Date:

Date = #12/30/2001"   set the Date to Dec 30, 2001

You can also do this with Now

Now = #12/30/2001 12:00:00PM#

I tried that already thinking it was so obvious, but I get an - Illegal assignment: 'Date' error. What am I doing wrong?

maybe that was removed as a potentail 'loophole' in eVB.  Worth a shot.

No solution, as I am guessing it can't be done.
