Control Panel and NT Cmd

Hi all

From the command line I am trying to open the Date/Time control panel extension at the TimeZone tab.

Any ideas

Cheers

Sam

    Which version of Windows do you have? I only have a single tab, with a ComboBox for the choice of the Time zone. Should your program do such things on my computer, it might get errors.

    Greetings
    From the command line I'm not sure you can specify the tab, running timedate.cpl (or control.exe timedate.cpl) will bring up the applet. In C++ I've used
    WinExec(("control.exe desk.cpl, display,1"),SW_SHOW);
    to bring up the display options with the the ScreenSaver tab showing. Replaceing desk.cpl with timedate.cpl in the same code should do it. Assumeing Msoft included the display X tab code in that applet. The Forum I got the code from mentioned It's missing from some of the applets, Different departments / different projects etc.

    Hope this is helpfull
