Hi, I have a issue, after a lot of tries and errors this is the final code, I also inserted a comment for each line to know about the structure of what I like to achieve in summary an auto-refreshing of all stored datetimes (with old timestamp and remaing days) with new one, all this with to make the difference.
I put also the debug where program give me this error. How can I solve this?

What I have tried:

For i = 0 To ComboBox3.Items.Count -1    //the -1 is for next loop by all combobox stored items (in this case remaining time) 
            Dim d As DateTime = DateTime.Now
            Dim parsedate As String = ComboBox2.SelectedItem.ToString //this is where old is stored
            Dim d2 As DateTime = DateTime.ParseExact(parsedate.ToString, "dd/MM/yyyy hh:mm:ss", System.Globalization.CultureInfo.CurrentCulture) //now this string it's giving me an error to datatime not valid
            Dim dysdiff As Integer = (d - d2).Days //this one is to make the subtraction between old timestamp and new, the old one are stored in combobox2, both will have always same number of items
            ComboBox3.Items(i) = (365 - dysdiff).ToString + " Days" //this one is for substitute the old value of remaining time to new one, always in days format
            ComboBox3.SelectedIndex = i

The custom datetime format string "hh:mm:ss" will fail when hh is not in the range [01,12]. What you most likely need is "HH:mm:ss" which accepts [01,24].
