You should probably show us the code snippet where you retrieve the system date and also where you write the value of the system date to the label1.Text field. If you are only trying to display the date, then you likely have a syntax error there which is attempting to write back to the system date as opposed to just reading it.

You can use below code to show date of Today.

Label1.text = "Date : " & Now.Date

I am using this code in my vs2005 on xp. And it is working.

Hi Tarun,
thanks a lot i changed the code Now.Date

You said it yourself: "in my system don't have admin rights" - you need admin rights (and thus an admin account) to set the system date. If you don't have access to one, then you probably can't do it. This may help : MSDN - Insufficient security permissions to set the system date[^]

I hate getting uni-voted just because someone doesn’t like the answer. Your answer explains the reason for the error message.

Also would like to point out to the OP that this does not prevent getting the time, it means you can’t set the time. Which indicates the OP needs to show some code because it appears the code they are using is attempting to set the time. (Meaning, wrong code)

I hope my 5 is enough to compensate.

As S Houghtelin already says, your answer explains the issue correctly. The answer is correct, whether the univoter likes it or not. (+5)
Previously i used in application is
Label1.Text = Cstr(Today)
the above line of coding i got the error message like "Insufficient security permissions to set the system date"

Now i changed the code
Label1.Text = Cstr(Now.Date)

It's working fine.
