All it does is change a few registry keys so I don't see the point of using a 60 kilobyte file to do it when a few hundred-byte .reg would've sufficed...

More info on the registry settings:

I discussed this with some members on another forum several months ago:

http://www.woodmann....read.php?t=7842

I'd rather just disable autoTZ and set it myself...

I've discussed this topic here already: http://www.msfn.org/...showtopic=76654 but nobody was interested in it.

I just had a quick look at that topic, and I'm thinking about adding time zone updates/dialing rules to the next SP. I already have dialing rules in the SP for Q327517, I just added the rules for Q750109, and I'm planning to add more as soon as I find them. Also, I plan on adding the time zone update to the SP when I get the required info.

I also just added the time zone change for Mexico in Q289502.

If anyone can point out where more changes are, please let me know ASAP.

guess I'm a little too asleep.

Those will be added as well Petr. Thanks for all the work you've done on that .inf.

So I have exported all registry entries after KB928388 applied and converted them to Windows 9x format and created both complete and update both reg and inf files, see the attachment:

I don't know how it is with some timezones that use "Dynamic DST" sub-branch:

Can Windows 9x use "Dynamic DST" information? Probably not.

For some timezones "TZI" = "2007", but for some not. Any idea why? What should be added to Win9x servicepacks, TZI or "2007" contents?

I've discussed this topic here already: http://www.msfn.org/...showtopic=76654 but nobody was interested in it.

Because most users don't really care about international support (and I myself couldn't care less...)

Time zone, I'll just change it myself :whistle:

If this was true, Unofficial Service Packs, SE2ME, Revolution Pack (or even your 2gb patch!) wouldn't exist in so many languages. :angry:

So I have exported all registry entries after KB928388 applied and converted them to Windows 9x format and created both complete and update both reg and inf files, see the attachment:

note to MDGx: ALL Win95 & Win98 users MUST install all year 2000 fixes & the timedate.cpl Q237493 hotfix before installing the unofficial Q928388 DST time zone registry fixes

minor correction: DST is daylight saving time, not daylight savings time - common mistake most people make

It updates all time zones if necessary for year 2007 and adds some new. You can download the complete list of changes from my previous post.

Please note that the time zone names are in English.

* Unofficial Windows 95/98/ME 2007 U.S.A. Daylight Saving Time (DST) Time Zone Update:

Thanks for this hotfix MDGx !! But can i suggest a better name for the update --- it does more than update the USA Time Zone DST settings ... it seems to do the entire world!! People not living in the US might think its useless to install, but its not....

For example, the Greenwich time description is updated from just 'Casablanca, Monrovia' to 'Casablanca, Monrovia, Reykjavik' --- in fact this is what autopatcher looks for to see if the update is installed. I've called the update the "Unofficial 2007 Updates to Time Zone Daylight Saving Time Settings" --- I think having the word USA in the name would be a mistake. But this is a little thing really. Still, HTH.


While we're talking about time zones ...

For the Unattended Boot Cd for Windows 98se v4 that I'm working on, i've added the ability to choose your time zone before installing the OS. It's all done in DOS and i'm not really keen to include every single time zone there possibly is. The option screen is busy enough as it is...

I'd be interested to know if the list I have so far would be sufficient for most (if not all) the people that might want to use it. This list is:

CLS
echo.
echo. *** Time Zones ***   (only the major time zones are shown)
echo.
echo. U1  Pacific Time (US & Canada)  -08:00  A2  Islamabad, Karachi		 +05:00

echo. U3  Central Time (US & Canada)  -06:00  A4  Colombo					+06:00 
echo. U4  Eastern Time (US & Canada)  -05:00  A5  Bangkok					+07:00
echo. U5  Atlantic Time (Canada)	  -04:00  A6  Hanoi					  +07:00

Do the files really have to be that huge? Anything over the size of the .reg file posted above just doesn't make any sense.

Yeah, I totally agree, this is going to completely use up all my unused monthly data allowance, AND totally saturate my bandwidth for my ADSL2 broadband connection (with theoretical speeds up to 3mb/s).

I mean, what were you thinking MDGx? The original reg file is about 14,000 bytes which is a whopping 1% of the size of a floppy disk, and your hotfix is 67,000 bytes, a massive increase of about 400% which now would take up over 4% of a floppy. Outrageous !!!

(just in case: :P )

(just in case: the hotfix has already been added to autopatcher, thanks heaps for your efforts to provide easily installable hotfixes for the non-computer heads of the world, you are a legend)

oh quit whining, soporific! SHEESH! MDGx's unofficial 928388 patches are small anyway. why complain about a bunch of relatively small byte sizes? the difference between 14k bytes and 67k bytes are almost insignificant

and my DSL connection is only up to 384 Kbits/sec and no faster

Excuse me erpdude8, this update is valid only for United States?


like Petr said, it's for ALL parts of the world - not just for the USA

note that MDGx also made an unofficial 928388 patch for WinNT4/Win2000/pre-XPSP2 systems as M$ didnt release any 2007 time zone fixes for these older Windows systems.

please re-read my post, because there is supposed to be humour there, not criticism. I have an ADSL2 connection --- 3mb/s in theory, and about 2mb/s in practice. That's right, more than a floppy disk every second. Which is why I made the calculations above based on the size of a floppy.

SHEESH!!!
