Default Daylight Saving Time - Windows Mobile Fix

I found this article and thought I would pass it on. Microsoft has provided the registry setting to implement new DST for PDA's and SmartPhones. This site I found, edgeblog, has provided a nice cab to make it easier for us...

Thanks guys! (Why couldn't M$ make the cab for us???)

I am glad that there are some others that know about the DST change..... can you say Y2K all over again, but this time there will be a problem the day after.

Where is all the press coverage this time? I know my machines will work on March 11!!

Default Additional file needed?

On the MS site, it says "For some versions of Windows Mobile 5.0 Pocket PC, there will be additional updates required that will be available the week of February 26. We apologize for the inconvenience." Any idea if the MDA needs these additional updates?

I tried the one from MS's site and it failed on install. Somewhere I thought that WM6 was already ready for this...but I could be wrong.

Just found a page on MS's site about WM6 and I quote:
Q. Does Microsoft’s recently released Windows Mobile 6 platform require this update?
A. No. It does not require an update.

The page is here: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsmobi...tdownload.mspx and the question is the very last one.

I first tried to install the official Microsoft cab that they were nice enough to notify me about, but it wouldn't even install.

Then I installed DST2007.cab - it installed fine.
However, Sunday I woke and eagerly checked my 8125, and NO CHANGE HAD OCCURRED.
So I set the time manually, and then my alarms were all off.

Did this cab work for anyone?

Edit: Just went to edgeblog, and found this post: "Once you apply the patch, you must manually change your timezone to something else and click apply. After that, change it back to your correct time zone. This forces the phone to re-read the registry file. I tested this on my Blackjack and it worked perfect. The phone changed the time correctly at 03/11/2007 2:00AM to 3:00AM and gave me a dialog box telling me it had adjusted for DST."

So, I have re-installed the cab and done the above, and soft-reset, and now when I do SP TimeSync I don't have the hour difference anymore that I was getting.

Moral of the story: Not just read the posts, but follow the links and read, rinse and repeat.

I'm installing this now, I hope it helps because this was exactly what I was looking for. After DST my entire phone has been messed up. All appointments are starting an hour later and ending an hour later....but the best....really lovely part is that my alarm goes off an hour early. The fact that my phone has made it through angry mornings for a week is a miracle. I hope this helps.
