An update that includes the 2012 daylight saving time (DST) change for Chile is available for Windows Embedded CE 6.0. This update changes the time zone data to accommodate the DST changes in Chile.

  • For the mainland, the daylight saving time ends at 23:59:59 on April 28, 2012. At this time, the clocks should be reset to go back to 23:00 of the same day.
  • For the mainland, the daylight saving time starts at 23:59:59 on September 1, 2012. At this time, the clocks should be reset to go forward to 01:00 of the next day.
