1881Re: [SpectrumLabUsers] Time Signal Decoder not setting PC Time
- Jan 23, 2014Hi Rob,
Welcome to the group.
New Member saying hello.
I have a problem with the Time Decoder. I use MSF Rugby and obtain a good decode with a strong signal.
However when I press button to set the PC time it says 'Done' but in fact it doesn't set the clock.
I'm assuming this is a OS problem. I use Win 7.
Is there something that needs setting in Win to ensure it does set it.
So my guess: Windows 7 / 8 doesn't allow an application to modify the system time anymore, for whatever strange reason. At least not using the function in the C runtime library. Maybe it works in Win XP compatibility mode, or when running SL with raised privileges ?
Is there, by chance, some internet-based timekeeping service enabled which immediately sets the clock back to where "windows" thinks it should be ? ;-)
Oh yes, new operating systems can drive you crazy. Especially if you're a software developer...
I would really like it automatic, I can get it very close by manual setting but would prefer it to be closer.
I use digimodes, WSPR and WSJT Meteor Scatter so time is an element.
