HI @pebas , Thank you for posting!
The team will have a look and advise accordingly. Regards.

Time::Local::TZ is not compatible with Windows.


This module uses your operating system rules to convert time. They are based on environment variable TZ and can differ from OS to OS. Many modern OSes (including Linux and FreeBSD) support Olson timezone names (like Europe/Berlin , America/New_York etc.), which is the only recommended way to use with this module. Other OSes usually know only POSIX timezone names. You can deal with them too, but the result can be inconsistent. There is no native Olson db support in Windows, but CYGWIN solves this.

ActivePerl for Windows will not run under Cygwin. ActivePerl for Linux will not run under Cygwin either. If you use Cgywin, you need to use the Perl that is provided by Cygwin.
