The timezone and summer times settings on the server are different from the ones on this workstation

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

This message occurs if Q++ notices that the Timezone settings of your workstation are different from the ones of the Q++ Server. This difference is important because it could lead to your workstation and the Q++ Server seeing file dates differently causing unjustified appearances of messages related to the need to regenerate holidays and the need to re-scan templates.

 

This message does allow you to continue the launch of Q++ by clicking on the OK button, however this is not recommended for the reasons mentioned above. When you encounter this message, you should click on the Cancel button and immediately address the issue as described below.

 

To determine which of your workstation or the server (or both) uses incorrect Timezone settings double-click on the Windows Taskbar Clock on both the server and your workstation.

 

 

Once you have double-clicked on the taskbar clock, the Date/Time Properties dialog will appear.

 

 

Select the Time Zone tab and :

 

1.Make sure that the GMT zone selected at the top of the dialog, on the server, is the appropriate one (ie. it is not using the California timezone if you are in Europe). If the option Automatically adjust clock for daylight savings is available, turn it on (unless you are certain that your location does not use summer time).

 

2.Make sure that the GMT zone selected at the top is the exact same on your workstation as on the server (following any changes made in step 1, above).

 

3.Make sure that the time is the same on the server and on your wokstation.

 

While you are at it, you may want to repeat the above steps on all other workstations.
