Re: Difference in Time
If I may suggest a different approach.
You can always set up a timer that every minute or so checks to see if one
of the tasks times is the current time. (Unless you need it to start right
at 8:00:00pm and not 8:00:35pm).
To get the number of seconds for a timer period you can always do this
COleDateTimeSpan Span = TrigerTime - COleDateTime::GetCurrentTime();
double Seconds = Span.GetTotalSeconds();

I've a question regarding time.
I am creating an application that works much like the old Task Scheduler.
have a specific time I want to do an action. For example, every Sunday at
8:00 PM, I want to do my action. My approach is to simply create a thread
and have it ::WaitForSingleObject on a waitable timer. The only problem
having is how can I determine the number of seconds between NOW and the
Sunday at 8:00 PM? Thank you.
