Incorrect Time Stamp using Spark Client

When using my own .msi installer the Spark client shows the time stamp in UTC time even though the systems are set for Central Time, including the Server. When I uninstall and use the .exe the time shows correctly.

Any ideas?

I created an msi file by using Advanced Installer 6.5.2. I’m not too happy with it as it doesn’t copy over the desktop shortcuts, and it takes a while to install. Does anyone have a basic msi installer they are willing to share. The one hosted here is terribly outdated, buggy, and I’d rather not use it at all.

Thanks a lot for your time.

You can try some of the msi installers from here http://www.igniterealtime.org/community/docs/DOC-1822 But the latest ones can have some nasty bugs too.

It seems to be a problem with Java getting the correct time sync.

What I ended up doing was creating a file called Spark.vmoptions and added this line: -Duser.timezone=GMT-6:00

Then I pushed the file out via global policy to copy the file for users logging on.
