Istar time sync issue

Post by brian715 » Tue Oct 10, 2017 9:22 pm

We recently ran into an issue when scanning and using our new Istar. The time was slightly off, just enough that the pictures appeared to happen just before the scans did. The pluggin that scene uses to colorize using Istar images uses the file names which come from the time stamps to figure out which scan that picture goes with. After talking with the support staff at NCTech, there was not a .exe to run that would be able to correct this, but my co-worker was able to whip one up real quick. Here is it for anyone that may need it. It will only change the time and not the date. Hope this can help someone else that also didn't read the directions. ;)
