NirSoft is an open source tool for Windows OS. RunAsDate is an easy to use, portable utility which allows running a program in a specific time and date. This is convenient as it allows multiple applications to be run at the same time without any problems.
RunAsDate has a GUI (Graphical User Interface) which allows for easy configuration and usage. The program can be run directly from the desktop icon or via the shortcut icon on the taskbar. I managed to compile and run RunAsDate with the following instructions. The steps are as follows: Once the application has been installed, first set the RunAs Date and Time to current time and date, by right clicking on the desktop icon or shortcut and then clicking properties. In the General section, enter the current time and date and click OK.
To fix this fixed bug, it is recommended that users update to the latest official version of RunAsDate which is v3.5. Currently, this is the only release that works with the Windows operating system, which unfortunately is no longer supported or developed by the original developer. There is also another small problem whereby RunAsDate cannot load properly if the computer's memory is too low. I am not sure if this is a real problem or if it is just a result of an outdated compatibility version of the software, but either way I have been unable to resolve the issue using the built-in repair facilities available within the program.
