I need to convert time between different timezone, from some server time to some other local time.

I already know fromServerTime and toLocalZoneName

When I use
TimeZoneInfo toLocalZone = TImeZoneInfo.FindSystemTimeZoneByID(toLocalZoneName)

I got TimeZoneNotFoundExceptionsaying that "The time zone ID 'Chile Standard Time' was not found on local computer."

'Chile Standard Time'  is a valid time zone Name, why it was found? Is there any prior setting for it? My machine is a standard one.

Check out TZUTIL to view a full list of available time zones.

From a command line or PowerShell window navigate to C:\Windows\System32 and run tzutil /l for a full list of supported time zones. I believe that CLT is on the same schedule as US EST - although daylight saving may not be in line.

If you'll notice, Chile Standard Time is not listed - so you'll need to utilize another time zone that is in the same time.

Exactly you are right.  

"If you'll notice, Chile Standard Time is not listed - so you'll need to utilize another time zone that is in the same time."

But I'm working on time converting from a servertime to a destination local time using C#. How can I make it to support all zones? How can I make machine recogniztion Chile Standard Time? As anyother time zones like Europe, Asia, etc are all listed, while Chile Standard Time is not. Why is it and how to make it listed. I want to all of them avaiable.\

Appreciate further help.
