I see a warning in my Win7 Events Log:
The time service has not synchronized the system time for 86400 seconds because none of the time service providers provided a usable time stamp.
The message suggests that I run:
When I try to run that command, I get an error:
The following error occurred: The specified module could not be found. <0x8007007E>
I can run w32tm with no arguments and get the expected list of w32tm commands, so the program is accessable and runs.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
Sounds like a firewall issue; verify that UDP port 123 is open to your time source. The source will be the domain controller for domain-joined machines, or time.windows.com for standalone. To get an idea of what NTP servers you are configured to use, and how well in sync you aren't, you can use:
(Ping testing won't much help diagnosis because ping is ICMP, a different protocol than the UDP that carries NTP. So it's like using your bicycle to verify you can drive somewhere in your car - but your car has a flat tire.)
