Computer file dates
I have several hundred aerial images of a bridge project that I'm planning to put an a CD for the construction company. The creation date of the file does not always correspond with the creation date of the photo. What I would like to be able to do is re-set the file creation date in the groups of 20-40 image files for that day. I can go in and change my computer's date to the date I want and do a batch process on groups of files. This seems a roundabout way of doing this, and, what with Win XP's oddities, it might not be a good idea to arbitrarily reset the 'puter's clock.
Although I have the date of the photo in the EXIF image tag, it would be convenient to have the file date correspond to the photo date.
I guess I'm looking for a file date re-write batch utility.

Ok. I got the File Timer (author: http://www.mikasalonen.com ) and it needs the .dll file COMCTL32.OCX, which is not on the OEM install of Win XP home on my 'puter.
No problem, the .dll was available at the author's website.
The error message trying to install the File Timer was that "one component not found in Registry", so I guess I'll need to register the .dll. Being a DOS/Win3.11 expert, I've not fiddled with a "new winders" registry before. I'm going to poke around and see about adding it later today, but any guidance would be appreciated.
