RunAsDate Windows Clock Time Utility

Werbung

RunAsDate is a small utility that allows you to run a program in the date and time that you specify. This utility doesn’t change the current system date and time of your computer, but it only injects the date/time that you specify into the desired application.
You can run multiple applications simultaneously, each application works with different date and time, while the real date/time of your system continues to run normally.

How does it work ?

RunAsDate intercepts the kernel API calls that returns the current date and time (GetSystemTime, GetLocalTime, GetSystemTimeAsFileTime), and replaces the current date/time with the date/time that you specify.

System Requirements

RunAsDate works under Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8. Older versions of Windows are not supported. There is also x64 version available in a separated download, for using with x64 applications.

Using RunAsDate

RunAsDate doesn’t require any installation process or additional DLL files. In order to start using it, simply copy the executable file (RunAsDate.exe) to any folder you like, and run it.
In the main window of RunAsDate, select the desired date and time and the application that you want to run. Optionally, you can also specify the command-line parameters to run the program. Press the “Run” button to start the application with the specified date/time.

Immediate Mode

In versions prior to 1.03, RunAsDate always waited until the kernel was fully loaded, and only then injected the desired date/time. This mean that some programs that get the date/time im very early stage, received the real current date/time, instead of the fake date/time of RunAsDate. Starting from version 1.03, when the ‘Immediate Mode’ is turned on, RunAsDate inject the date/time immediately when the process starts, without waiting to the kernel loading. However, this mode can also cause troubles to some applications, especially if they were written in .NET

If executing an application from RunAsDate cause it to crash, you should turn off the ‘Immediate Mode’.

Using RunAsDate from Command-Line

You can also use RunAsDate from command-line, with the following syntax:
RunAsDate.exe {/immediate} {/movetime} {/startin [folder]} {/returntime [seconds] } [dd\mm\yyyy] {hh:mm:ss} [Program to run] {Program parameters}

Examples:
RunAsDate.exe 22\10\2002 12:35:22 “C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11\OUTLOOK.EXE”
RunAsDate.exe 14\02\2005 “c:\temp\myprogram.exe” param1 param2
RunAsDate.exe /movetime 11\08\2004 16:21:42 “C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11\OUTLOOK.EXE”
RunAsDate.exe /movetime /returntime 15 10\12\2001 11:41:26 “c:\temp\myprogram.exe”
RunAsDate.exe Hours:-10 “C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11\OUTLOOK.EXE”

RunAsDate Limitations

  • RunAsDate will not affect applications that take the current date/time from another source. For example: application that loads the current date from remote server.

Translating RunAsDate To Another Language

RunAsDate allows you to easily translate all dialog-boxes and other strings to other languages.
In order to do that, follow the instructions below:

  1. Run RunAsDate with /savelangfile parameter:
    RunAsDate.exe /savelangfile
    A file named RunAsDate_lng.ini will be created in the folder of RunAsDate utility.
  2. Open the created language file in Notepad or in any other text editor.
  3. Translate the dialog-boxes and string entries to the desired language.
  4. After you finish the translation, Run RunAsDate, and all translated strings will be loaded from the language file.
    If you want to run RunAsDate without the translation, simply rename the language file, or move it to another folder.
