Virtual PC irreversibly out of synch with Win7's clock

by 42Sebastian / January 16, 2012 9:24 PM PST

Even though I have reset the virtual's clock, and UNticked the option to take time from the internet, moments after I reset it, it reverts to "it's own" incorrect time. How can I lock-in the time to the correct value ?

What I did to fix mine.

I went to the Control Panel in my VPC and changed the REGION or TIME ZONE to be what I needed.

Solved !

I found that every time I changed the Region in the Control Panel, the time would still revert to the wrong value. But then I changed the Time Zone in the options under 'Adjust Time/Date' of the systray clock. It still went to the wrong time (automatically), but when I reset it to my own correct zone, the correct time remained ! Problem Solved !

It was one or the other. I'm not at a machine with VPC today so I had to remember what it could be.
