Windows time is drifting

Depending on your Windows configuration the system time may not be accurate within deskMate.

To solve this issue you can change the way Windows sources its clock. Depending on the OS version there are different steps required:


Windows XP/2003

Add /usepmtimer to your boot parameters into your boot.ini. For example:

multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect /usepmtimer


In Windows 2008/2008 R2/Vista/7

Use bcdedit for changing the clock source (in a cmd with administrative rights):

bcdedit /set {default} USEPLATFORMCLOCK on
