Are you sure that the display server is set to the correct time zone? Are the messages sent from the display server or from your production computer.

I've noticed very often that the time set in BIOS is different from the time used by Windows and WATCHOUT uses the Windows time.

Hi Orf,

I did some research on it on my production computers and I agree that this seems to be a bug. The thing is that WATCHOUT does not use UTC but the actual difference to UTC depending on the timezone x2. I.e., if you're in Arizona, which is UTC -7:00, the offset is -14 hours. If you're in Abu Dhabi, which is UTC +4:00, the WATCHOUT time says +8 hours.

Hi Orf and Rainer,


This has been confirmed as a “bug” in WATCHOUT and it will be addressed in a future version of WATCHOUT. Thanks for bringing this to our attention.


Best regards,
