U.S. Congress has changed the dates for Daylight Saving Time (DST) in the United
States starting in 2007 and Canada followed by adopting similar DST dates. These
changes could cause clocks and Microsoft Outlook calendar appointments on
Windows Mobile-powered devices to display incorrect times for March 11 Ã¢â‚¬â€œ April
1, 2007 and October 28 Ã¢â‚¬â€œ November 4, 2007 and again in subsequent years because
Daylight Saving Time (DST) will now start three weeks earlier (2:00 a.m. on the
second Sunday in March) and will end one week later (2:00 a.m. on the first
Sunday in November).
Impact between March 11, 2007 and April 1, 2007:
- The device clock does not automatically update to DST and is one hour
later than actual time.
- Calendar items display one hour later than they actually occur.
Impact between October 28, 2007 and November 4, 2007
- The device clock does not automatically update to standard time and is
one hour earlier than actual time.
- Calendar items display one hour earlier than they actually occur.
You can prevent these problems by installing three Microsoft files on your
device and/or PC:
- Microsoft Windows Operating Systems Update
- Daylight Saving Time 2007 Update Tool
- Outlook Time Zone Update Tool
All users in the United States, Canada and Mexico should immediately install
these updates. Users in other countries should install these updates if they
travel to the United States, Canada and/or Mexico or if they make calendar
appointments that include attendees that are based in the United States, Canada
By the way: Windows Vista and Office 2007 users don't need to install the
patches - these Windows and Office versions are up to date already but in any
case, all Windows Mobile users should install the patches bellow, except if you
have a Windows Mobile 6 device already.
