You cannot set the file create attribute or the update time attribute for some files that you want to burn to a CD-R/RW disc by using Image Mastering API (IMAPI) version 1 in Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008
This article has been archived. It is offered "as is" and will no longer be updated.
You develop an application that uses Image Mastering API (IMAPI) version 1 to burn a file to a CD-R/RW disc. However, when you use the application in Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008, you cannot set the file create attribute or the update time attribute on the files that you burn. Instead, the times on these files remain the original times that the files were burnt to the disc.
This problem occurs because Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008's compatible layer for IMAPI Version 1 does not preserve the file create attribute or the update time attribute that is set by the API.
To resolve this problem, install the following hotfix. After you do this, you can use the IStream::Stat() method on the file to set the the file create attribute or the update time attribute for a file.
