I have asked this question on stack overflow but its probably better suited here.

So I have a Motorola MC3190 Mobile Barcode scanning device with Windows CE 6.0.

Now I want to get the device to sync its date/time on boot up with our domain controller using a registry file that I have created.

I have used this registry file below to get close to what I require.



"Autoupdate" = dword:1 
"server" = "NAMEOFMYSERVER" 
"ServerRole" = dword:0
"Trustlocalclock" = dword:0 

"DefaultLCID" = dword:00000809 
"LCID" = dword:00000809

@ = "UTC"

@ = "UTC"

"AutoDST" = dword:00000000 

Now it gets the correct date and shows the time zone correctly however the time is always 5 hours behind on Eastern Standard Time, which is really annoying.

I have researched heavily into this and this question has been asked before here

As you will see I have copied what it suggests but it doesnt work.

Something is overiding the time which I dont understand enough about to resolve.

I cannot find any other setting to get it to set the time correctly.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Please translate your answer to English, add proper formatting and explain what is it exactly that this registry modification does. – gronostaj Jun 28 '13 at 14:36
