The Argentinean government has announced new start and end dates for the Daylight Saving Time in Argentina for the period of 2008-2009. The new daylight saving time for Argentina is the following:

  • Daylight saving time begins:  October 19th, 2008
  • Daylight saving time ends:  March 15th, 2009

Since the new dates published by the government are different from what was defined in the previous years, Windows-based computers will not correctly interpret the time that is related to the transition to daylight saving time.

Customers have two options to adjust Windows PC Operating Systems with the new dates for Argentina time zone defined by the government. We recommend every customer to read and understand the limitations of every one of these options. Please read this post to better understand the impacts of every option before adjusting the operating systems.

  • For users in Argentina, our team delivered a Webcast this 10/17 to discuss about this change and to show what users can do to adjust Windows operating systems and Exchange/Outlook. If you did not participate on this webcast, you can download the presentation (in XPS format) here.
