Subject: Mapping Localised Windows TZ to TZID


My developers are using the following mapping to [establish] then map a Windows TZ to a unix TZID, [Olson], LDML etc.


The issue is the only registry entry they have located so far has the Windows TZ stored as a text string and this is localised on non English Windows.  In Windows is there a language [independent] reference for the TZ that machine is currently set to that we could utilise?

Please also pass on this enquiry to any parties who may be able to help.

Regards, Ian
