  • I believe I at one point had to write an implementation for one weird Microsoft DateTime format in Archive::Zip, have a look in there.

    And it was indeed something very very odd.
    • I found the particular set of routines you mentioned, but alas they don't appear to apply to the date values returned by Outlook :( Using your algorithm I get 'Thu Jan 4 12:24:00 2007' +/- up to 2 minutes for every entry during 2004, 2005 and 2006.

      There are a few websites where they mention odd handling of the Win32 dates, but none that I've found that mention the algorithms used to convert into any human readable format or even a Unix format :(
