    Manipulating system Time and Date

    Does anybody know of any software that would allow us to manipulate system dates while testing. There is software out there but most of it is for mainframes..e.g. TICTOC, Time Facility, Hourglass, SIMDATE. I'm looking for something besides TimeMachine (verry expensive) Many Thanks

    are you Windows or *nix?

    on windows, can't you just use the DOS command: TIME ?

    you could just wrap a script around it to change times as needed.

    We're a windows SQL server site.
    If your environments are in Active Directory, you won't be able to go forward in time, besides the fact that your systems administrator may be not be happy with your having that level of access...so you need something to wrap around it and interrupt calls to system date on the PC, on the server etc etc.

    You really should check out www.timechannels.com

    An artificial system clock is what you want to use, although it does require the developers to cooperate and implement it. That site does a pretty good job explaining it, and offers downloads to help get started.
