Time Zone update for Altiris CE thin clients
Posted on 2010-03-30
I have 4 HP T5520 thin clients (they run Windows CE/Altiris CE) that are not behaving properly after the last daylight savings time change.
When a user logs into Citrix on them in Outlook the time is not correct. Under tools, calendar options, time zone the time is wrong even though the time zone is set correctly (CST).
I found a December 2009 patch from Microsoft which corrected the same problem on my Windows XP Embedded based 5570 thin clients but I can't find anything for these.
Are these thin clients outdated and I won't be able to fix them, I know how to update the registry on CE using the antiquated text dump, modify and reimport... is there possibly a way to update them manually?
Is it time to "bite the bullet" and buy some newer more fully featured thin clients to support DST going forward?
BTW why doesn't Expert's Exchange have a thin client computing zone? The best zone I could find for this question was OS/Misc OS
