Integer Overflow in DateTimeToTimeStamp function (Sysutils)

I had a problem with a program that has been widely tested, but recently, in two computers  I started getting the Integer Overflow exception at random times (I can't get a pattern) when i try to access some date routines like formatdatetime or now. Madexcept has traced the problem back to the DateTimeToTimeStamp function in SysUtils, but it´s in assembler and I don't really remember much from my asm classes to know whats happening. I've searched all over the internet for a solution or someone with a similar problem but i haven't found anything. I suspect it may be relaed to the regional settings or something like that.

Does any one have a clue about what's happening here?

This is an excerpt from the related madexcept log.

The date time is obviously getting messed up, so couple of questions.

- Are you handling the OnGetTime event, and is it possible that the date / time value is getting messed up there?
- Have you tried placing a try / except handler in the TJvClock.GetTime method to allow you to log the value that is causing the exception?

The actual cause of the exception is this:

@@1:    DIV     IMSecsPerDay

And is caused by too large a number being passed in as a date time value. Also, any place where you are enabling / disabling the clock within an event handler that might call GetTime?

Regards,
Russell

It is probably because different Regional Settings on the different computers. You can you Float (DateTime is Float) and the format it.
