Time property

The Time property is the current time in hours, minutes, and seconds as a string of literal text in the format HH:MM:SS using a 24 hour clock. For example, the time 6:57 p.m. is represented by "18:57:00". The format of the value depends upon the user's locale, and is the format obtained using GetTimeFormat function with the TIME_FORCE24HOURFORMAT | TIME_NOTIMEMARKER option. The value of this property is set by the Windows Installer and not the package author.


Because this is a text string, it cannot be used in conditional expressions.
