What is the problem?

i can,t get the correct date

The Java Date constructor you are using expects milliseconds since January 1, 1970, 00:00:00 GMT - C# works in Ticks which aren't the same at all: Date (Java Platform SE 8 )[^]

I'd construct a DateTime object at Jan 1 1970, then use the DateTime.AddMilliseconds(Double) Method (System) | Microsoft Learn[^] method to convert your Java value to C#.

its not working

"its not working" is probably the most useless problem report we get - and we get it a lot. It tells us nothing about what is happening, or when it happens.
So tell us what it is doing that you didn't expect, or not doing that you did.
Tell us what you did to get it to happen.
Tell us any error messages.

Perhaps show us the exact code you used as well?
Your value for conversion is not correct. The following code returns today's date in ticks as specified at DateTime Constructor (System) | Microsoft Learn[^].
DateTime dateTime = DateTime.Now;
var ticks = dateTime.Ticks;
Console.WriteLine($"dateTime: {ticks}");

And the result is:
dateTime: 638083380629232554

Well you still need to start with a valid number to make a valid date.
