Our application runs on linux server, clients are Win XP- there is OK. For clients Win Vista/Win 7 system displays error message ad effectum:
“Time zone on server: Central European Summer Time( offest=3600000, use dayligh time=true) is not consistent with client's time zone: Greenwich Mean Time( offest=3600000, use dayligh time=false).“

Remark, that clients Win XP, Win Vista and Win 7 have set the same time zone. What is the difference between the same time zone Win XP vs. Win Vista/Win 7

I cannot tell from your response if the previous answer helped.

If it did not, verify that all devices have the "Automatically adjust clock for Daylight Saving Time" set under the Time Zone settings."

The error message shows that his is enabled on the server and disabled on the client.

You need to give some more details, what application are you talking about? How do the clients connect? Is the timezone actually set to be the same in XP and Win7? Could be your application is reading the timezone wrong from the computers, I'm sure programs written for XP would have some issues with Win7.
