Thanks for the response.
The reg key type is BINARY. I'm assuming that windows acts similar to
UNIX in that the time is a great big number that you can run through some
magic functions to convert it to a human readable version. Do you know if
this is a correct assumption? If so, do you know the magic function?
My goal is to be able to convert to human readable format, twiddle the
date, then convert it back and store back in the registry.
