Just noticed this morning the Timestamps are incorrect by 1 hour, this has potentially been since Daylight Savings occurred a few weeks ago, the timestamps indicate its running in GMT+12 (NZST) not GMT+13 (NZDT) can anyone verify if this is a known bug?

Its based on your system time. If you system clock changed, so did your timestamp

I can confirm the same problem. mIRC is not correctly displaying the time in v7.36 (also vista, but 32bit).

Current system time 0200 AEDT (GMT+10/11).
Time reported by mIRC 0100.

Its not based on the system time. It affects NZDT. Its also been around for a number of years.

Thanks for your bug report. I have been able to reproduce this issue. It looks like it was due to legacy code that was attempting to get around a combination of bugs in the Windows C run-time and older versions of Windows. I have implemented a fix that seems to be working correctly under XP/7/8 under different timezones with/without daylight sayings. This fix should be in the next version.
