    timedate.cpl

    If you go to your run command on the start menu, you can type timdat.cpl, and it will pop up the time/date screen you get when you double click on the time in your taskbar. I have tried using the file open action to run this, and it will not run it, says there is no application associated with the file type. Does anyone know how I would get this to work from within AMS?

    Not sure, but your first sentence doesn't hold true for Win98SE. There's no such file as "timdat.cpl"...

    piece of cake.
    you'll need to use conditions to get across windows platforms
    For Win9x -Me
    Use file.execute %WinDir%\control.exe with arguments timedate.cpl
    For Win2k - XP
    Use file.execute %WinDir%\system32\control.exe with arguments timedate.cpl

    the command line equivilent would be C:\windows\control.exe /timedate.cpl

    Thanks, worked great!
    Are there a lot of different Windows features you can access using this control.exe?
    Where could I find out more about this kind of stuff?
