FIX: The default time zone is set incorrectly in a Windows Embedded Compact 7-based non-English (US) OS image

You create and start a Windows Embedded Compact 7-based non-English (US) Operating System (OS) image. You find that the default time zone under Time and Date is set incorrectly to (UTC-08:00 US Pacific).

Consider the following scenario:

  • You create a Windows Embedded Compact 7-based Japanese OS image and configure the follow locale settings under the Property configuration properties:

    • Language Pack to Build: 0411

    • Installed UI Language Packs: 0411

    • Default UI Language: Japanese (Japan) - (0411)

    • Default Locale: Japanese - (ja)

  • You start the OS image.

  • You open the Time and Date item in Control Panel.


In this example, the default time zone is set to (UTC-08:00 US Pacific) instead of to (UTC+09:00 Osaka, Sapporo, Tokyo).

This issue occurs because the new DefaultTZID registry setting is not added in the registry file. Therefore, the OS is always set to dwID = TZID_PACIFIC as the default time zone.
