Q: How do I set my time zone to Lord Howe Island?

Lord Howe Island (373 miles north-east of Sydney) and has its own time zone, UTC+10:30 standard time, and UTC+11:00 when on daylight saving time. 


In Windows 7, there is no matching time zone in the drop down. Nor is there a match in the Registry (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Time Zones). Nor is it listed in .NET/Powershell ([TimeZoneInfo]::GetSystemTimeZones()). 

Is there a hotfix or a setting somewhere to enable this to show up?


http://support.microsoft.com/kb/914387 shows a way to edit a current time zone to what you want (supposedly; I haven't tried it). Looks pretty involved from a quick glance.

Sorry this didn't help.


Not sure why this was marked as an answer? The article has a registry file that contains binary serialized TimeZoneInfo objects that define a whole bunch of Time Zones. It doesn't show how to create custom time zones, and it doesn't include Lord Howe Island time in the list.

Sorry this didn't help.


Use TZEdit to create a new one. Norfolk Island is also missing.
