SetLocalTime info  Overview  Group

The SetLocalTime function sets the current local time and date.

BOOL SetLocalTime(

    CONST SYSTEMTIME *lpSystemTime 

// address of local time to set



Points to a SYSTEMTIME structure that contains the current local date and time.

The wDayOfWeek member of the SYSTEMTIME structure is ignored.

Return Values

If the function succeeds, the return value is nonzero.

If the function fails, the return value is zero. To get extended error information, call GetLastError.


Windows NT: The SetLocalTime function fails if the calling process does not have the SE_SYSTEMTIME_NAME privilege. This privilege is disabled by default. Use the AdjustTokenPrivileges function to enable this privilege and again to disable it after the time has been set. For more information about security privileges, see Privileges.

Windows 95: Security privileges are not supported or required.
