Daylight Savings

Post by finedesignz » Tue Mar 13, 2007 5:20 pm

I have been getting an error when sync'ing with lightning since daylight savings time went into effect. It comes up with an error saying the time zones do not match.

Any suggestions?

Hello,

If you live in the USA, there was a change this year regarding daylight savings time. It starts on the 11th of March instead of the 1st of April.
So you need to apply a special patch on your mobile to update your time zone:

http://www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile/ ... fault.mspx

It's possible that after installing the patch you need to disconnect and reconnect several times your mobile to get rid of the error (as some users reported).

Note that Lightning or Sunbird version should be 0.3.1 and that update 931936 should be installed on Windows.

It is still possible that some problems remain with appointments that were created before all these updates and which occur in the 11-31 period. After synchronization, check that appointments are not shifted on your mobile...
