Our products generate a "diagnostic report" which lists all of the system and Windows information you could ever want to know about a machine. We're testing a new model of industrial PC, and the diagnostic report was failing while it was enumerating the device drivers installed.

The Intel chip-set drivers for this new, fancy-schmancy motherboard (dual Xeon's, 64GB RAM, 10GB ethernet) report creation dates in... 1968(*). Yes ladies and gentlemen, these drivers were written under the influence of some really trippy acid during the Summer of Love Roll eyes | :rolleyes: .

(*) A FILETIME value passed to a CTime constructor, which promptly throws an exception because the date/time is out of range for the underlying time_t value, based on the UNIX 1/1/1970 epoch date.
