Windows Mobile Devices Will Not Reflect DST time in Australia for the 2006 Commonwealth Games
Posted on 5-Dec-2005 15:42 | Tags Filed under: News



Microsoft Windows CE and Microsoft Windows Mobile devices will not correctly reflect the new transition from daylight saving time that occurs on 2 April 2006, in Australia. This problem will cause the time to be 1 hour off from the correct time on the affected systems between 26 March 2006, and 1 April 2006.

The Commonwealth Games are scheduled to occur during March 2006 in Melbourne, Australia. Several Australian states have changed the daylight saving time transition end dates to the first Sunday of April 2006 because of the games. These states include the New South Wales, Victoria, Australian Capital Territory, South Australia, and Tasmania.

For 2006 only, the official daylight saving time transition dates for these Australian states have been changed from 27 March 2006 to 2 April 2006.

To work around this problem, users in the affected time zones, except for Coordinated Universal Time (UTC)+9:30 (South Australia), will have to adjust their clocks to be in a time zone that is UTC+11.

Microsoft recommends users to set the time zone in the Windows Mobile devices clock to the Magadan time zone (UTC+11) between 27 March 2006, and 2 April 2006.

The company has released an update that will automatically managed this changed, but only for desktop and laptop systems.
