Hi All,

Need a help on finding right patch to install on windows server 2012 R2 or in all deployment web servers for getting below missing timezones list and those are all exist in windows 11.

  1. Magallanes Standard Time [(UTC-03:00) Punta Arenas]
  2. Omsk Standard Time [(UTC+06:00) Omsk]
  3. Qyzylorda Standard Time [(UTC+05:00) Qyzylorda]
  4. Sao Tome Standard Time [(UTC+00:00) Sao Tome]
  5. Saratov Standard Time [(UTC+04:00) Saratov]
  6. Sudan Standard Time [(UTC+02:00) Khartoum]
  7. UTC+13 [(UTC+13:00) Coordinated Universal Time+13]
  8. Volgograd Standard Time [(UTC+04:00) Volgograd]

Our .net application throwing error when user selecting above zones from the application UI, because those are not exist in app server.

  • Sample logic: Dim userTimeZoneName As String ="Magallanes Standard Time"
    Dim userTimeZone As TimeZoneInfo
    Try
    userTimeZone = TimeZoneInfo.FindSystemTimeZoneById(userTimeZoneName)
    Catch ex As System.TimeZoneNotFoundException
    ' Error finding time zone id
    userTimeZone = TimeZoneInfo.Utc
    End Try

    Just keep your Windows Server 2012 R2 is up to date(or install the latest Monthly rollups), the daylight saving time (DST) patch will be installed automatically.
    The following Microsoft article give us detailed information:
    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/914387/how-to-configure-daylight-saving-time-for-microsoft-windows-os
    Besides, there is not a Windows version called Windows 11, I think you want to say Windows 10…
