Last Modified: 2016-04-06
lets say i have a file zones.txt
inside this file I have the following
1 central standard time
2 central standard time
3 eastern standard time

how via a bat script can I read that file and pass it to tzutil

basically in the script it will say type location number so i hit 3
it will then search the text file and issue the command tzutil /s "Eastern Standard Time"
