    OK, I know how to do this with 32-bit function calls, but there don't seem to be equivalent functions in the 16-bit DLLs...but there must be a way! I need to set a file's date/time stamp to a certain time. There is a specific reason that I MUST write this program using VB3, which means I can use only 16-bit function calls.

    I don't want to set the computer's clock, write to the file, and set it back. That is clumsy and there has got to be a more elegant way! Can anyone help please?

    Perhaps you could register older (16bit) dll (now replaced with 32bit dll) and make a use of it.

    The kernel32 function calls, SetFileTimeWrite and several of the others, are not in kernel 16-bit. What do I use?

    Please help! I am at my wit's end. I know that it is possible in 16-bit; WinZip for Windows 3.1 does it (it has to have a way to set the file date/time for files it extracts). ?
