time zone varable

By indy ·
i have a program that requires a statement
"set tz=et" that runs everynight.
when this is used it messes with eudora and
outlook. I would like to know what the tz
varable is suppose to be to change it back to enable the outlook and eudora to work .
This way i can run a batch file to set the tz
and change it back to the original setting.

time zone varable

by dmiles In reply to time zone varable

This is Time zone = Eastern Time,and may be a batch or script file that is set up to run a program on eastern time,you may want to check the folder and see if it can be changed there or go to HKEY_LOCALMACHINE/Software/CurrentVersion,to see if the program is there.
Hope this helps.

i know where it is set at but need to know windows default tz format to reset it after the program runs and shuts down. so that when i use outlook and eudora they will work with the windows default setting

The variable is typically set with the following:

Like in NY below:

EasternStandardTime5(offset from GMT)EasternDaylightTime

For Los Angeles: SET TZ=PST8PDT
For Denver: SET TZ=MST7MDT
For Arizona: SET TZ=MST7 (Arizona never uses daylight savings time)
For Chicago: SET TZ=CST6CDT
For New York: SET TZ=EST5EDT
For London: SET TZ=GMT0BST
For Amsterdam: SET TZ=MET-1DST
For Moscow: SET TZ=MSK-3MSD
For Aukland: SET TZ=NZT-13
