I am working with code using an old Rogue Wave C++ library.  I am trying to write C++/CLI code to convert a RWTime for use by some C# code (.NET DateTime).  An RWTime can provide me the number of seconds since 1/1/1901.  How can I convert these seconds into a .NET DateTime?  If there is a better way I wouldn't mind hearing about that also.

you can do something like:

DateTime dt = (new DateTime(1901,1,1)).AddSeconds(yourRWTime value here);

That is exactly what I needed.  I didn't even see the AddSeconds() method.  All the examples on the web pointed me at TimeSpan.  Thanks for the help!
