    DIFFER questions....

    ZIP/U compares wrong timestamp

    Assuming the user has somehow told Windows what the correct timezone settings are, you can find out whether DST is in effect and whether DST is even observed and what the offsets from UTC are. ~\Work> w32tm /tz Time zone: Current:TIME_ZONE_ID_STANDARD Bias: 300min (UTC=LocalTime+Bias)...

    Exchange Rates

    I don't see 'already running' at all. Try it with in-process pipes ( |! instead of | ) and see what happens. If you don't see the 'already running' using in-process pipes, then it's probably the result of something in your TCSTART.BTM . type...
